4 cups low-sodium chicken stock
3 pounds fresh fava beans, shelled;  or 1 pound frozen lima beans, thawed

In a medium saucepan, boil the stock over medium-high h eat.  Add the beans, and reduce the heat to low.  Simmer the beans until they are tender (about 5-8 minutes).  Drain the beans, but reserve one cup of the stock.  Place the drained beans and reserved stock in a blender or food processor.  Add the mint and blend until smooth.  Season with salt and pepper to taste. 

In a large skillet, heat enough oil to fill the pan 1/4 inch deep, over medium-high heat.  Season the fish with salt and pepper on both sides.  Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until brown and the center is opaque. 

Divide the fava bean puree between four serving plates.  Place a filet of red snapper on top of the puree.  Serve immediately.
