  • peanut oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/3 cup nicoise olives, pitted and chopped
  • 2 tbsp. capers, rinsed with water and patted dry
  • 1/3 cup roasted red bell pepper, finely chopped (home-roasted is best)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp. Balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp. minced orange zest
  • 1 tbsp. fresh orange juice
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Prepare and heat grill to medium-high heat. Mix together all relish ingredients in a small bowl while grill heats. Set relish aside. Brush fish portions with peanut oil on both sides and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill on prepared grill over medium-high heat for approximately 7 minutes on the first side, turn over and finish grilling until desired doneness is reached. Thickness of fish filets will affect grilling time. When fish is grilled, place on serving plates and place a spoonful of relish over the top of each piece. Serve immediately with fresh herb garnish and your choice of starch and vegetable. Makes 8 servings.
