Grilled Halibut with Herb Salad and Chive Oil
3 shallots -- thinly sliced
3 tablespoons sherry or tarragon vinegar
finely grated zest of 1 lemon
6 6 ounce skinless halibut fillets
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons chive oil -- (recipe follows)
salt and freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup small mint leaves
1/4 cup tarragon leaves
1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves
1/2 cup torn basil leaves
1/2 cup watercress leaves
18 nasturtiums -- (optional)
1. In a medium bowl, combine the shallots with the vinegar and lemon zest and let marinate at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
2. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan and oil it lightly. In a glass baking dish, coat the fish with 2 tablespoons of the Chive Oil and season with salt and pepper.
3. Stir 2 tablespoons of the Chive Oil into the shallots. Add the mint, tarragon, parsley, basil, watercress and nasturtiums, season with salt and pepper and toss gently to coat.
4. Grill the fish until cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer the fish to plates and mound the herb salad alongside. Drizzle the remaining 2 tablespoons of Chive Oil around the plates and serve at once.
