Ingredients
  • 1 cup crosnes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup fava beans, blanched and peeled*
  • 2 tablespoons truffle oil
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 (6-ounce) snapper fillets
  • Flour, for dredging
Directions

Wash the crosnes by soaking them in water and scrubing gently with a vegetable brush, taking care to get all dirt and sand out of the nooks and crannies.

Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a heavy pan. Add the crosnes, season with salt and pepper, stir, and cook for 5 minutes. Add butter and water, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook for about 10 more minutes or until tender. Add fava beans and heat through. Remove from heat and drizzle with truffle oil.

Heat olive oil in a medium skillet. Dredge snapper in flour and saute until cooked through and slightly golden, about 3 minutes per side.

Divide favas and crosnes among 2 plates. Top with snapper and serve.

*To prepare fresh fava beans:

With your fingers, pop open the bean pods along their seams and pull out the individual fava beans. Use a thumbnail to split open the tough outer skin of each bean, then peel it off with your fingertips.
