INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 habanero chile, seeds removed, finely chopped
  • 1 small garlic clove, finely chopped
  • ½ cup unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 4½ teaspoons light brown sugar
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 small red onions, cut through root ends into 8 wedges
  • Two cups sugar snap peas, strings removed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided, plus more for drizzling
  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed
  • 600-800g snapper fillets skin on
  • 1 cup torn basil leaves
  • ¼ cup crushed salted, dry-roasted peanuts

METHOD:

  1. Prepare a grill for medium-high heat. Put a large cast-iron skillet on grill to heat.

  2. Meanwhile, stir chile, garlic, vinegar, and brown sugar in a small bowl until sugar is dissolved; season chile vinegar with salt. Set aside. Toss onions, sugar snap peas, and 1½ tsp. oil in a large bowl; season with salt.

  3. As soon as skillet is hot, add vegetables and cook, stirring occasionally, until blistered and crisp-tender, 6–8 minutes for onions and about 4 minutes for sugar snap peas. Transfer to a platter.

  4. Toss green beans and 1½ tsp. oil in another large bowl and cook directly on grill grate on one side until blistered, lightly charred, and crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Transfer to platter with onions and sugar snap peas and toss to coat; drizzle reserved chile vinegar over.

  5. Wipe out skillet with paper towels. Add 1 Tbsp. oil and set back on grill. Season snapper all over with salt and cook, skin side down, in skillet until skin is golden brown and crisp, about 4 minutes. Turn and cook just until cooked through, about 2 minutes.

  6. Set snapper on top of bean salad and top with basil and peanuts. Serves 4.
