Triggerfish Schnitzel with Summer Succotash
Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion, garlic and crushed red pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in corn, marjoram and thyme; cook, stirring occasionally, until the corn is tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in lima beans, zucchini, tomatoes and snap peas; cook, stirring occasionally, until the zucchini is tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 1/4 cup basil and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cover to keep warm.Advertisement
If your fish is thicker than 1/2 inch, place in a large sealable bag and gently pound with a meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/2 inch thick. Season with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt.
Whisk eggs and mustard in a medium bowl. Place flour and breadcrumbs in separate shallow dishes. Dredge the fish in the flour, shaking off excess, then dip in the egg mixture, letting the excess drip off, then coat with the panko.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook half the fish, undisturbed, until golden and crisp on one side, 1 to 3 minutes. Turn the fish and add 1 tablespoon oil; cook until golden and crisp, 1 to 3 minutes more. Transfer to a plate and repeat with the remaining fish and 2 tablespoons oil.
Arrange the fish on the succotash. Top with the remaining 1/4 cup basil and serve with lemon wedges, if desired.
