    tips & techniques
    Cook the farro
    1 Cook the farro

    Fill a large pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the farro and cook, uncovered, 18 to 20 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Cover to keep warm. 

    Prepare the ingredients
    2 Prepare the ingredients

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Place the raisins in a bowl; cover with hot water. Set aside to rehydrate at least 10 minutes. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onions. Medium dice the zucchini. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Pit and roughly chop the olives. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate the lemon to get 1 teaspoon. Quarter and deseed the lemon.

    Cook the vegetables
    3 Cook the vegetables

    Drain the rehydrated raisins. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the diced zucchini, chopped garlic, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the vegetables are browned and softened. Turn off the heat. Stir in the drained raisins and chopped olives. Transfer to a bowl and cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

    Cook the fish
    4 Cook the fish

    Pat the fish dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned fish, skin side down. Cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until the skin is browned and crispy. Flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked through.* Turn off the heat.

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 145°F for fish.
