Red Snapper With Coconut-Clam Broth
Yield: 4 servings
The fennel seeds turn into an aromatic, crunchy crust on the skin.
4 (5-ounce) red snapper fillets
2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 teaspoons fennel seeds, lightly crushed
2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil or vegetable oil
1/4 cup cilantro leaves with tender stems
1/4 cup alfalfa sprouts
2 teaspoons toasted unsweetened shredded coconut
Flaky sea salt
Olive oil (for drizzling)
Heat stock in a medium pot over low; keep warm.
Meanwhile, sprinkle fish on both sides with kosher salt. Top skin side with fennel seeds, patting lightly to adhere.
Heat coconut oil in a large cast-iron or nonstick skillet over medium-low. Working in 2 batches, cook fish, skin side down, until skin is crisp, 6-8 minutes. Turn and cook on other side 30 seconds.
Divide stock among shallow bowls. Add a fish fillet to each, placing skin side up, and top with cilantro, sprouts, coconut, and some sea salt. Drizzle with olive oil.
