  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and about 1/2 cup salad)

Ingredients

  • 2 oranges
  • 1 medium fennel bulb with stalks
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 4 (6-ounce) yellowtail snapper fillets
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves

Preparation

Peel and section oranges over a bowl, reserving 2 tablespoons juice. Thinly slice fennel bulb; chop 1 teaspoon fronds. Discard stalks. Place orange sections and sliced fennel in a medium bowl. Combine reserved juice, fronds, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Drizzle juice mixture over fennel mixture; toss well to coat. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
