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

Wash produce before use


Cook the zucchini

  • Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise. Drizzle the cut sides lightly with 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil and season with salt, if desired, and pepper.
Warm a dry large frying pan over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the zucchini, cut sides down, and cook, turning occasionally, until tender and lightly browned, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.
While the zucchini cooks, prepare the tomato-caper relish.


Make the tomato-caper relish

  • Cut the tomatoes into quarters.
  • Rinse the capers, then coarsely chop them.
In a medium bowl, stir together the tomatoes, capers, and ½ teaspoon [1 tsp] oil; season with salt, if desired, and pepper. Let stand while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Prep and cook the fish

Prep and cook instructions are almost identical for all fish options.
  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; season with salt, if desired, and pepper. If using snapper, discard the skin, if desired.
  • On a plate or shallow bowl, spread the arrowroot powder in an even layer.
Working with 1 fillet at a time, gently press the fish into the arrowroot powder, coating both sides.
In the same pan used for the zucchini, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] ghee, butter, or oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add the fish and cook, turning once, until the crust is golden brown and the fish is cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes per side for sole and 4 to 6 minutes per side for halibut or snapper. Transfer to a plate.
While the fish cooks, prepare the garnishes.


Prep the garnishes

  • Cut the lemon into wedges. [Cut 1 lemon into wedges. Save the remaining lemon.]
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.


Transfer the fish and zucchini to individual plates. Garnish the fish with the lemon wedges and parsley, top the zucchini with the tomato-caper relish, and serve.
