Who doesn't love a 20-minute meal - especially in the summer months, when cooking for extended periods of time over a hot stove isn't idyllic? Pro tip: the pasta salad will get better the longer you allow the flavors to meld together. Make it one day ahead of time to ensure a paramount summer salad situation.

Combine paprika, garlic powder, salt, pepper and cayenne in a small bowl.
Evenly coat fish on all sides with spice mixture and heat avocado oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until oil begins to shimmer.
Cook fish, skin side down, for 5-6 minutes until skin becomes crisp. Carefully flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
To serve, place one 8 ounce piece of blackened snapper on a plate, top with strawberry-tomato salsa and enjoy with a side of farfalle pasta salad.
