Sautéed Snapper with Green Beans, Tomatoes and Balsamic Vinegar
In “French Food at Home,” Laura Calder shares a recipe for a simple yet elegant one-skillet, six-ingredient (not counting the salt and pepper) sautéed fish supper. Our riff yields a slightly more substantial vegetable accompaniment to serve with the fillets but is equally easy to prepare. We like green beans, but if you prefer, use pencil-thin asparagus instead. Red snapper is a mild, firm-textured white fish that holds up nicely to sautéing. Flounder is a good alternative, as it typically is of the same thickness as snapper. Halibut works nicely, too, but the fillets are thicker and therefore require a few more minutes in the pan.
6-ounce skinless red snapper fillets (½ to 1 inch thick)
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
01Season the fish on both sides with salt and pepper. In a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high, heat 1 tablespoon of oil until shimmering. Add the beans and cook, stirring only once or twice, until spottily browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the tomatoes and ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes begin to char and burst and the beans are tender-crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer the vegetables to a serving platter.
