Heat an outdoor grill or an indoor grill pan on high heat.

Cut the filets into 4 portions. Rub each filet with a cut clove of garlic. Sprinkle both sides with salt. Set aside.

Toss together the green onions, diced cucumber, oranges, cilantro, pomegranate seeds, lime juice, cumin and salt to taste.

Spray the filets with nonstick cooking spray and place on the hot grill. Reduce the heat to medium-high and grill the fish about 4 minutes on the first side. Turn and cook the filets just until tender and they flake easily with a fork, an additional 3 to 4 minutes.

Place the fish on a plate. Sprinkle with freshly ground pepper and spoon the salsa alongside. Place a few salad greens on the plate with the fish.
