Instructions

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

Wash produce before use

1

Make the scallion-lime sauce

  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure ½ teaspoon [1 tsp].
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; finely chop the scallions.
  • Zest and juice the lime, keeping the zest and juice separate (the juice will be divided between the sauce and the slaw).
  • If using the jalapeño, remove the stem; thinly slice the jalapeño crosswise. Wash your hands after handling.
In a small bowl, stir together the garlic, scallions, ginger sauce base, lime zest, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lime juice, and as much jalapeño as you like. Let stand while you prepare the rest of the meal.

2

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 generously with salt, if desired, and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the fish (skin side down for the skin-on salmon or snapper) and cook until lightly browned (and the salmon or snapper skin is crisp), 4 to 5 minutes for skin-on salmon or snapper and 3 to 5 minutes for skinless salmon. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 2 to 4 minutes for skin-on salmon or snapper and 1 to 2 minutes for skinless salmon. Transfer to a plate.
While the fish cooks, prepare the slaw.

3

Make the orange-cabbage slaw

  • Using your hands or a sharp knife, peel the orange. Working over a large bowl, cut along both sides of each membrane to release the segments into the bowl. Alternatively, cut the fruit crosswise into ½-inch-thick slices. Discard any seeds.
  • Grate or peel and finely chop enough ginger to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
  • Strip the mint leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
To the bowl with the orange, add the ginger, mint, cabbage, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lime juice, and 1 to 2 tablespoons oil and toss to combine. Season with salt, if desired, and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the fish and orange-cabbage slaw to individual plates. Top the fish with as much scallion-lime sauce as you like and serve any remaining sauce on the side.
