Grilled Miso-Marinated Sablefish on Baby Greens

This recipe is from Sooke Harbour House near Victoria, rated the world's second-best country inn in 2000 by Gourmet magazine. Sinclair Philip, the chef and proprietor, and his kitchen crew, including head chef Edward Tuson, the creator of this recipe, are known for their dedication to local fresh produce and seafood. For the miso paste here, they recommend one from Denman Island, one of the northern Gulf Islands. Sablefish, also known as black cod, comes from the cold waters of the northwest Pacific. Because it may be difficult to buy outside the West Coast, substitute Atlantic halibut.
