This delicious, sophisticated dish takes inspiration from the vibrant ingredients of southern France’s Provence region, like the punchy, briny duo of capers and niçoise olives served atop flaky cod fillets. It all comes together over a bed of white beans and vegetables cooked in the bright oil reserved from charring lemon in the pan.
