Nut-Crusted Snapper with Broccoli Rabe

By Jennifer Iserloh

Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients

4 6-ounce snapper fillets, skin removed
¼ tsp salt
1 cup ground chickpeas
1 cup ground walnuts
1 egg
1 bunch broccoli rabe, about 1 pound, chopped
1 garlic clove
1 Tbsp olive oil

Directions

Sprinkle fish on both sides with half the salt. Place chickpeas in a food processor and pulse to break them up. Pulse 12 to 15 times, until the chickpeas resemble chopped nuts. Transfer the chickpeas to a plate. Add the nuts and mix them in with your fingers.

Place the egg in a shallow bowl and whisk it. Dip one side of the fish in the egg, then press that side into the chickpea-and-nut mixture. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add fillets, crust side down, to the skillet. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until the crust has browned. Turn once and transfer the skillet to the oven. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the fish flakes when pressed with a fork. 

Prepare the broccoli rabe: Place garlic and oil in the skillet. Place the skillet over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the broccoli rabe. Add a tablespoon of water and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, turning often, until the broccoli rabe is wilted. Sprinkle with remaining salt and serve immediately along with the fish.
