Wash produce before use
Prep and start cooking the fish
- Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
In a medium [large] frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons 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 6 minutes. Turn and cook until the fish easily lifts away from the pan but is not yet cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan. While the fish is cooking, prepare the vegetables.
Prep the vegetables
- Peel the onion and cut in half lengthwise, then crosswise into enough thin slices to measure ¾ cup [1½ cups].
- Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ½-inch-thick half-moons.
- Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal for garnish.
Cook the vegetables and sauce; finish the fish
In the same pan used for the fish, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook until starting to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the zucchini and cook until starting to soften, 1 to 2 minutes.
Add the tomatillo simmer sauce and ¼ cup [½ cup] water and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook until the sauce starts to thicken, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the fish (skin side up for the skin-on salmon or snapper) and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky and the sauce is thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer the fish, vegetables, and tomatillo sauce to individual bowls. Garnish with the scallions and serve.
- Measure the onion.
- Measure the water for the sauce.
- Time the cooking.
- Garnish with the scallions.
