Sole arrabbiata and squash-ribbon salad with tomatoes and basil
Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Paleo, Lean & Clean, Mediterranean
This paleo and gluten-free spin on a coastal Italian classic takes only about 20 minutes to make but yields full, complex flavors.
In your bag
- 1 or 2 cloves organic peeled fresh garlic
- 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
- Fish options:
- 2 wild sole fillets (about 5 ounces each)
- 2 wild Alaskan halibut fillets (about 6 ounces each)
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 1 teaspoon red chile flakes (optional)
- 1 cup diced tomatoes
- Arrabbiata herb blend (dried oregano - dried thyme)
- 1 organic zucchini or other summer squash (see Market Watch note)
- 3 ounces organic grape or cherry tomatoes
- 4 or 5 sprigs organic fresh basil
- ¼ cup walnuts
- 4 or 5 sprigs organic fresh flat-leaf parsley
Make It Leaner
Use only 1 tablespoon oil to make the arrabbiata sauce in Step 2 and you’ll slash 60 calories and 7 grams of fat per serving. To save an equal amount of calories and fat per serving, skip the drizzle of oil over the cooked fish in that step.
A favorite way to add mild heat to most any dish, red chile flakes tend to contain every part of the dried chile: skin, seeds, and veins (the hottest part, because they hold the most capsaicin). They're most often crushed dried cayenne chiles, though serranos and jalapeños are also frequently in the mix, along with ancho and árbol chiles and sometimes even sweet bell peppers. Heat and color can vary widely depending on the blend.
Due to inclement spring weather, instead of zucchini or other summer squash, you may receive asparagus in your bag. Snap off the woody ends, then peel the stalks into ribbons as directed in Step 3 for the zucchini. Toss the asparagus ribbons with the sherry vinegar and oil and let stand for 2 to 3 minutes before adding the remaining salad ingredients.
