1 WHOLE RED SNAPPER, RINSE AND PAT DRY
2 TBSP OLIVE OIL
1/2 tbsp KOSHER SALT
1 TSP Black Pepper
1/4 cup BUTTER, MELTED
1/4 CUP HARISA
1 BUNCH WATERCRESS, TRIMMED AND WASHED
2 CHERRY PEPPERS, THINLY SLICED
3 SCALLIONS, THINLY SLICED
2 TBSP CHOPPED CILANTRO
2 TBSP MINT LEAVES TORN
2 LIMES, JUICED
1 TSP BROWN SUGAR
1/4 TSP FISH SAUCE
1/4 CUP OLIVE OIL
SALT AND PEPPER, TO TASTE
In a medium bowl combine melted butter and harissa.
When ready to cook, set the temperature to High and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
Coat the exterior of the fish with olive oil and season with salt and pepper on both sides. Place fish directly on the grill grate, brush with the harissa-butter mixture and cook for 15-20 minutes.
While the fish cooks, prepare the salad. In a small bowl combine the lime juice, brown sugar, fish sauce, salt and pepper. While whisking, slowly stream in olive oil. In a medium bowl combine the watercress, peppers, scallions, cilantro and mint. Wait to dress the salad until ready to serve.
Flip the fish and brush the other side with harissa-butter mixture. Close the lid and continue to cook 10-15 minutes more until the internal temperature registers 145℉.
Carefully remove the fish from the grill and place on a serving platter. Drizzle the dressing over the greens, season to taste with salt and pepper and mix to coat.
Pile the salad over the top of the fish and drizzle the fish with remaining dressing if desired. Enjoy!
