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

Wash produce before use


Prep and cook the fish arrabbiata

  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel. Cut the sole crosswise into 2-inch-wide strips, the salmon or barramundi into ½-inch-wide strips; if using king salmon or barramundi, discard the skin if desired. Season lightly with salt and pepper.

In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the arrabbiata sauce base and either ¼ cup [½ cup] water and ¼ cup [½ cup] red wine (from your pantry) or a total of ½ cup [1 cup] water. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Add the fish, cover, and cook without stirring until the fish is opaque and flaky, 2 to 3 minutes for sole, 3 to 5 minutes for salmon or barramundi. Remove from the heat, drizzle with 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Meanwhile, prepare the salad.


Make the squash ribbon salad

  • Lay the squash flat. Trim and discard the round end. Holding the stem end secure, using a peeler, shave the squash lengthwise into thin ribbons. Pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half.

In a large bowl, toss together the squash ribbons, tomatoes, walnuts, sherry vinegar, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the fish, arrabbiata sauce, and squash ribbon salad to individual plates and serve.
