Wash produce before use

1

Prep and cook the fish

Prep and cook instructions are almost identical for all fish options.
  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the fish (skin side down for the skin-on salmon or snapper) and cook until lightly browned (and the salmon or snapper skin is crisp), 4 to 5 minutes for skin-on salmon or snapper and 3 to 5 minutes for skinless salmon. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 2 to 4 minutes for skin-on salmon or snapper and 1 to 2 minutes for skinless salmon. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.
While the fish cooks, prepare the remaining ingredients.

2

Prep the lemon; finish the aioli

  • Zest and juice the lemon, keeping the zest and juice separate; set aside the juice for the vegetables. [Zest and juice 1 lemon; save the remaining lemon.]
In a small bowl, stir together the lemon-garlic aioli and lemon zest. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

3

Prep the remaining ingredients; cook the vegetables

  • Trim the stem ends from the green beans if needed; cut the beans into 2-inch lengths.
  • Trim the root end from the escarole; cut the leaves crosswise into 1-inch-wide strips.
  • Strip the tarragon leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves for garnish.
In the same pan used for the fish, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the green beans and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the escarole and cook until wilted, 1 to 2 minutes.
Remove from the heat and stir in 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the fish and vegetables to individual plates. Spoon the lemon-garlic aioli over the fish, garnish with the tarragon, and serve.
