Grilled Whitefish and Ratatouille Salad

Author: Canadian Living

Here, ratatouille, a stew of late summer vegetables, turns into a summer-perfect grilled salad. The same vinaigrette flavours the tender grilled fish and the salad and carries the summery flavour throughout the meal. The vegetables vary in size, so skewering them separately by type ensures that they all touch the grill and cook through in the same time.

  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 eggplant peeled
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1/2 sweet red pepper
  • 1/2 green pepper
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 1/2 cup cherry tomato
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh oregano
  • 3 tablespoons wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 whitefish fillet (skin on), about 1-1/2 lb (750 g)

Method

Cut eggplant, zucchini, red and green peppers and red onion into 1-inch (2.5 cm) chunks; place in large bowl along with cherry tomatoes. Drizzle with 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the oil; toss to coat. Thread onto 12 long skewers, grouping same vegetables together.

Place skewers on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning 3 times, until browned and tender, about 12 minutes. Remove vegetables from skewers and return to bowl; set salad aside.

Meanwhile, in small bowl, whisk together remaining oil, oregano, vinegar, mustard, garlic and half each of the salt and pepper; pour 1/4 cup (50 mL) over vegetables. Toss to coat; set aside.

Sprinkle remaining salt and pepper over fish; brush both sides with remaining dressing. Place, skin side down, on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill until fish flakes easily when tested, 8 to 10 minutes. Cut into serving-size pieces. Serve with salad.
