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

Wash produce before use


Make the snap pea salad

  • Thinly slice the snap peas on the diagonal.
  • Peel and thinly slice the shallots.

In a medium bowl, stir together the snap peas, shallots, champagne vinegar, and 2 to 3 teaspoons olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Make the spicy chile oil

  • In a small heatproof bowl, add as much Urfa chile as you like.

In a medium [large] frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil until hot but not smoking. Carefully pour the oil over the Urfa chile and stir to combine. Set aside for serving. Do not clean the pan.


Prep and cook the fish

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


In the same pan used to heat the oil for the chile oil, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons olive oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. 



Add the fish and cook, turning once, until lightly browned, about 30 seconds per side for rare, about 1 minute per side for medium. 



Add the fish and cook until lightly browned on the bottom side, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 2 to 4 minutes.


Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes. While the fish is cooking and resting, prepare the lemony yogurt.


Make the lemony yogurt

  • Zest and juice the lemon, keeping the zest and juice separate. [Zest and juice 1 lemon; save the remaining lemon for another use.]

In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, 2 teaspoons [1 TBL] lemon zest, and 2 teaspoons [1 TBL] lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Spread the lemony yogurt in a circle on individual plates. Place the fish in the center of the yogurt and top with the snap pea salad. Spoon over as much spicy chile oil as you like and serve.
