2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the succotash ingredients

  • Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons.
  • Rinse the butter beans.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half, leaving any smaller tomatoes whole.
  • Cut the butter into quarters.
  • Remove any thick stems from the parsley and dill, then coarsely chop the herbs. Divide into two equal portions, one for the succotash and one for garnish.


Cook the succotash

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the zucchini, season with salt and pepper, and cook, undisturbed, until starting to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and add the beans, tomatoes, edamame, tomatillo simmer sauce, and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and the sauce starts to simmer, 3 to 4 minutes. 

Gently stir in the butter and cook until melted, about 1 minute. Stir in half the parsley and dill and season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer the succotash to a large bowl and cover to keep warm. Wipe out the pan. While the succotash is cooking, prepare the fish.


Prep and cook the fish

  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; season lightly with salt and pepper.

In the same pan used for the succotash, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the fish (skin side down for the snapper) and cook until lightly browned (and the snapper skin is crisp), 4 to 5 minutes. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 2 to 4 minutes.


Transfer the succotash to individual bowls and top with the fish. Garnish with as much of the remaining parsley and dill as you like and serve.
