Pan Seared Red Snapper, Plantains, and Bok Choy

Red snapper, plantains and bok choy. OK, OK, I hear what you’re saying….this might sound like a weird combo, but I am telling you…it’s soooooo good! Just give it a try and let me know what you think. This is a nutrient packed plate of food. You’re getting proteins, healthy fats, micronutrients, and fiber. Plus tons of flavor. I hope you enjoy!!

This recipe is for one (pretty hungry) person. So just increase the amount of each ingredient as needed

 

Ingredients:

1 whole plantain – peeled and cut into spears

Coconut oil

2 baby bok choy – separated into leaves

Coco Aminos

Black Pepper & Salt

Olive Oil

Celery Root – use a vegetable peeler to create shavings, about 1/2 cup worth (use veggie peeler to remove hard outer layer first).

1 6-8 oz Red Snapper fillet

Smoked sea salt, black pepper, garlic powder

Squeeze of lemon

1 tsp minced garlic

 

How to:

fry plantain in coconut oil on medium/low until golden brown

cook bok choy in pot with 2 oz water, coco aminos, black pepper, until soft

heat olive oil in pan, once hot, throw in shaved celery root. Season with garlic powder, black pepper, dash of salt and cook until they look like chips, remove

season snapper in smoked sea salt, black pepper, garlic powder

Using the same pan you used for the celery root, heat olive oil on medium/low, once oil has heated up a bit add snapper flesh side down (make sure not to get pan too hot or fish will stick). add lemon and garlic. Continue cooking for 3-4 minutes. flip, cook for another 4 minutes or so paying attention to the color of the fish.

When ready to take off, turn up the heat just a bit with scales down so the scales stick to the pan, making it easier to peel the flesh away from the scaled.

Put snapper on top of bok choy in the plate, top snapper with celery root chips, put plantains on the side. According to my husband, this dish is “f’n good!” 😉
