Recipe Yield: Total time: 50 minutes, plus marinating time | Serves 2
2 (5-ounce) fillets snapper, preferably barramundi 2 teaspoons thyme leaves 1/4 cup chopped parsley, plus 1/4 cup whole parsley leaves, divided Grated zest of 1 lemon, plus lemon juice for drizzling over the cooked fish Grated zest of 1 orange 2 1/2 tablespoons best-quality olive oil, plus more for drizzling 6 fresh sweet Italian peppers 14 cherry tomatoes, halved lengthwise 8 Picholine olives, cracked and pitted 1/2 cup croutons (see Note) 2 shallots, sliced thinly 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

Step 1 Combine the fish, thyme, chopped parsley, lemon and orange zests in a shallow nonreactive pan and rub the seasonings over the fish. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate to marinate for at least 1 hour, up to overnight.

Step 2 Heat the oven to 400 degrees. In a medium saute pan, add 2 teaspoons of oil and saute the peppers over medium heat until tender, 8 to 10 minutes, shaking occasionally. Remove from the heat and set aside.

Step 3Remove the fish from the refrigerator; do not bother to shake off the marinade. Season each fillet with one-eighth teaspoon salt and a pinch of pepper, or to taste.

Step 4Heat a large oven-proof skillet over high heat until hot and add 2 teaspoons olive oil. Sear the fish skin-side down for 2 to 3 minutes until the skin is crispy, then flip each fillet over and place the pan in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes until cooked through.

Step 5While the fish is cooking, combine in a medium bowl the cooled peppers, tomatoes, olives, croutons, parsley leaves and shallots. Drizzle in the red wine vinegar and olive oil and toss together as a salad. Season to taste with salt.

Step 6Distribute the salad evenly in a small mound on each plate. Place 1 filet on top of each mound, and drizzle each filet with a squeeze of lemon juice and a light drizzle of best-quality olive oil. Serve immediately.
