Cook the lentils:
1 Cook the lentils:

Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the lentils. Cook 25 to 27 minutes, or until tender. Drain thoroughly and rinse under warm water. 

2 Prepare the ingredients:

Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the radishes lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Roughly chop the peppers. Peel the shallot; finely chop to get 2 tablespoons (you may have extra). Zest the lemon to get 1 teaspoon (if you don’t have a zester, use a peeler to remove the yellow rind of the lemon, avoiding the white pith; mince the rind). Quarter and deseed the lemon. To make the dressing, in a large bowl, combine the chopped peppers, diced shallot, creamy mustard sauce, the juice of 2 lemon wedges, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. To make the gremolata, roughly chop the parsley leaves and stems; place in a bowl. Add the lemon zest, the juice of the remaining lemon wedges, 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; stir to combine. 

Prepare the ingredients:
Cook & marinate the snow peas:
3 Cook & marinate the snow peas:

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the snow peas; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned and softened. Transfer to the bowl of dressing; stir to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Wipe out the pan.

4 Cook the fish:

Pat the fish dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned fish. Cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until lightly browned and cooked through.* Turn off the heat. 

* An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.

5 Finish & serve your dish:
