You'll have more green sauce than you'll need for this recipe, but it will keep in the refrigerator at least a week. Spoon it on steak, chicken, pasta, or roasted vegetables.

Instructions Checklist
  • In a large saucepan, cover 2 pounds small red new potatoes (about 21) with cold water; season with coarse salt. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook just until tender when pierced with a paring knife, about 15 minutes. If saving for another day, drain and let cool; then cover and refrigerate for later use.

  • Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Lightly oil a rimmed baking sheet. Smash each potato with the base of your palm and place on sheet. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons oil; season with salt and pepper. Roast until crisp, about 20 minutes.

  • Make green sauce. Chop remaining mint and basil and 1 bunch fresh parsley leaves. In a bowl, combine with 1 garlic clove, minced, and 1 tablespoon chopped capers. Stir in 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice and enough extra-virgin olive oil to coat; season with coarse salt and ground pepper. If saving for another day, cover and refrigerate for later use.

  • Make roasted tomatoes. Reduce oven heat to 350 degrees. Halve 14 plum tomatoes. On 2 large rimmed baking sheets, arrange tomatoes, cut side up, and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon sugar. Bake until softened and edges are crinkled, about 1 hour. If saving for another day, let cool. Cover and refrigerate for later use.

  • Meanwhile, score fish skin in a few places with a paring knife and season fillets with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Add fish, skin side down, and cook until browned and crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Reduce heat to medium; flip fish and cook until opaque throughout, 2 to 4 minutes. Serve fish with green sauce, potatoes, and tomatoes.
