Wash produce before use


Prep the sesame-zucchini fries

Heat the oven to 425°F.

  • Cut the zucchini in half crosswise, then lengthwise into quarters.
  • Crack the egg into a shallow bowl, season with salt and pepper, and lightly beat with a fork until just blended.
  • On a plate or shallow bowl, season the almond-sesame blend with salt and pepper and spread in an even layer.
  • Grease a sheet pan with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. 
  • In a large bowl, season the zucchini with salt and pepper, sprinkle with the arrowroot powder, and toss to coat.


Bread and roast the sesame-zucchini fries

Working with several zucchini fries at a time, dip into the egg; let the excess drip off, then gently press into the almond-sesame blend, coating all over. Transfer to the prepared sheet pan and arrange in a single layer. 

Roast, flipping the fries halfway through, until golden brown and just tender, 18 to 20 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the tomato aioli; when the fries are almost done, cook the fish.


Make the tomato aioli

In a small bowl, stir together the mayo and tomato blend; season to taste with salt and pepper.


Prep and cook the fish

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

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, reduce the heat to medium, and cook, turning once, until the fish is cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side.


For snapper and barramundi: 

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. 


Transfer the fish and sesame-zucchini fries to individual plates and serve the tomato aioli on the side.
