Instructions

Wash produce before use

1

Cook your protein

  • Pat your protein dry with a paper towel (if using shrimp or scallops, rinse and drain, then pat dry). Season with salt and pepper. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add your protein (skin side down for snapper).

Steaks: Cook the steaks, turning frequently, until well browned and medium-rare, 4 to 6 minutes for rib-eyes and New York strips, 6 to 8 minutes for top sirloins, and 8 to 12 minutes for filet mignons. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes. Cut into ½-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan. 

 

Chicken: Cook the chicken, turning once, until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue cooking, turning occasionally, until firm and cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes. Cut into ½-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan. 

 

Fish: Cook the fish until lightly browned (and the snapper skin is crisp), 1 to 2 minutes for sole and 3 to 5 minutes for halibut and snapper. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 1 to 2 minutes for sole and 2 to 5 minutes for halibut and snapper. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan. 

 

Shrimp: Cook the shrimp, turning once, until firm and cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side for regular shrimp, 2 to 3 minutes per side for jumbo shrimp. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.

 

Scallops: Cook the scallops without turning until golden brown on one side and starting to turn opaque, 2 to 4 minutes. Turn and continue cooking for about 30 seconds for translucent or 1 to 2 minutes for opaque. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.

 

Pork chops: Cook the pork chops, turning frequently, until browned but still faintly pink within, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes. Cut into ½-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan.

Cook the vegetables; prep the lemon

  • Trim the root ends from the baby broccoli.
  • Cut the lemon into wedges for garnish.

In the same pan, if dry, add 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the baby broccoli, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, about 2 minutes. Add the sliced almonds and organic squash and cook, stirring occasionally and scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, until the almonds are golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. 

Serve

Spread the romesco on individual plates and top with your protein. Serve the vegetables and lemon wedges on the side.
