Ingredients

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary

1 large shallot, thinly sliced (about 1/3 cup)

Four 6 to 7-ounce skinless fillets firm white fish, such as tilapia, striped bass or wild halibut

Nonstick cooking spray, for greasing

1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper  

Pinch crushed red pepper flakes

1 large head escarole (about 1 pound), bottom trimmed, leaves separated

1/2 cup golden or dark raisins

1 tablespoon white wine vinegar

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven broiler. 
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1/2 teaspoon rosemary and the shallots and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly caramelized, about 3 minutes. 
  3. Meanwhile, lay the fish in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet lightly coated with nonstick cooking spray. Mix 2 teaspoons of the oil with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon rosemary, the lemon zest, 1/4 teaspoon salt and black pepper to taste. Rub over the tops of the fillets. Broil until just cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes. 
  4. Add the red pepper flakes and escarole leaves to the skillet. Toss to combine and then cover. Cook, covered, until the leaves are wilted and tender, about 4 minutes, uncovering once to toss. Uncover and stir in the raisins, vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook until any liquid has evaporated from the skillet, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat. 
  5. Season with salt and black pepper. Divide the vegetables among 4 plates, top each with a piece of fish and evenly drizzle with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil.
