4 (6-ounce) red snapper, grouper, or orange roughy fillets
1/2 cup finely chopped green onions (about 4 onions)
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 garlic clove, chopped
2 cups frozen succotash, thawed
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup diced seeded plum tomato (1 tomato)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
Cooking spray

Preparation

Place fish in a shallow dish. Combine green onions and next 5 ingredients; spoon half of green onion mixture over fish. Cover and chill at least 2 hours.

Combine remaining green onion mixture, succotash, and next 3 ingredients in a bowl. Cover and chill.

Prepare grill.

Place fish on a grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 5 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve with succotash mixture.

Note: If frozen succotash is not available in your area, substitute 1 cup each of frozen baby lima beans and whole-kernel corn.
