Instructions

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the fish

  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
For the salmon or halibut:
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon olive oil until hot but not smoking. Add the fish (skin side down for the salmon) and cook until lightly browned (and the salmon skin is crisp), 4 to 5 minutes. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to individual plates. Wipe out the pan.

For the snapper:
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil until hot but not smoking. Add the snapper, skin side down, and cook until lightly browned and the skin is crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to individual plates. Wipe out the pan.

2

Cook the vegetables

In the same pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon olive oil until hot but not smoking. Add the fennel, squash, and tomatoes, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are lightly browned, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer the vegetables to the plates with the fish.

Serve

Drizzle the fish with the chimichurri and serve.
