Instructions

  1. 1Season the fish on both sides with salt and black pepper. Place in a large skillet with enough water to reach halfway up the sides of the fish.
  2. 2Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook the fish, covered, until opaque throughout, about 8 minutes.
  3. 3Transfer the fish to a plate and refrigerate until cool, about 15 minutes. Using a fork, flake the fish into large pieces. Set aside.
  4. 4In a large bowl whisk together the oil, lemon juice, mustard, cilantro, ½ teaspoon salt, and black pepper to taste.
  5. 5Toss the dressing with the mixed greens, chickpeas, avocado, and onion. Divide among serving plates and top with the fish.
