Cooking Light MAY 2009

  • Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and 1/4 cup relish)

Ingredients

  • Relish:
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, quartered
  • 1 red bell pepper, quartered
  • 1 orange bell pepper, quartered
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped capers
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Fish:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 (6-ounce) skinless halibut fillets
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

1. Prepare grill to medium-high heat.

2. To prepare relish, coat bell pepper pieces with cooking spray. Place pepper pieces on a grill rack; grill 3 minutes on each side or until lightly charred. Remove from grill; cool slightly. Coarsely chop bell pepper pieces. Combine chopped bell peppers, parsley, and next 6 ingredients (through garlic); set aside.

3. To prepare fish, brush 1 tablespoon oil evenly over fish. Sprinkle fish evenly with thyme, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Place fish on grill rack; grill 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Serve with relish.

Wine note: This dish begs for a good sauvignon blanc. Bell peppers, herbs, and capers all have bold flavors ranging from fresh green to herbal to briny. A good sauvignon will mirror all the green flavors here and provide a crisp counterpoint to the subtle flavor of the fish. Try the Kunde Sauvignon Blanc 2007 from the Sonoma Valley (about $16). —Karen MacNeil
