Grilled Cod With Chiffonade Of Sorrel

When you're shopping for sorrel, look for bright green leaves with tender stems. The larger the leaves, the older (and thus more strongly flavored) the sorrel will be. Avoid leaves that are yellow-green or wilted.

2 teaspoons 10mlOlive oil - divided
2   Garlic cloves - minced
1 tablespoon 15mlLemon juice

Recipe Instructions

Combine one-fourth cup of the olive oil with the garlic, lemon juice, coriander, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the cod. Cover and marinate 1 hour.

Cook the filets on an oiled grill until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.

While the fish is grilling, place the chiffonade of sorrel, the tomatoes and the dill in a bowl. Drizzle with the remaining 2 teaspoons of olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and toss.

Remove the fish from the grill. Spoon the sorrel mixture on top of the hot filets, allowing the greens to wilt slightly, and serve.
