Instructions

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

Wash produce before use

1

Soak the sun-dried tomatoes; cook the onion and potatoes

  • Finely chop the sun-dried tomatoes. In a small bowl, soak the sun-dried tomatoes in very hot tap water until softened, about 10 minutes. Drain, pat dry, and return to the bowl.
  • Peel the onion and cut in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick slices. 
  • Scrub or peel the potatoes; thinly slice the potatoes crosswise.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 4 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion and red wine vinegar, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the potatoes, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are tender and the onion is caramelized, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Meanwhile, prepare the fish.

Prep and cook the fish

  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; season the sole lightly with salt and pepper, the halibut, snapper, or salmon generously. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking.

For sole: Add the fish and cook until lightly browned on the bottom side, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 1 to 2 minutes. 

For halibut: 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.

For snapper: Add the fish, skin side down, and cook until the skin is crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 2 to 4 minutes. 

For salmon: 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 plate. While the fish is cooking, finish the sun-dried tomato za’atar.

Assemble the sun-dried tomato za’atar

  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves. Set aside 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] parsley for garnish. 

To the bowl with the sun-dried tomatoes, stir in the za'atar, 2 teaspoons [3 tsp] oil, and all except 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] parsley. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 

Serve

Transfer the onion and potatoes to individual plates and top with the fish. Spoon over the sun-dried tomato za'atar, garnish with the remaining parsley, and serve.
