Steps

  • 1

    In a medium bowl, combine melted butter and harissa.

    When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 425°F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 3

    Coat the exterior of the fish with olive oil and season with salt and pepper on both sides.
  • 4

    Place fish directly on the grill grate, brush with the harissa-butter mixture and cook for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • 5

    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.
  • 6

    Flip the fish and brush the other side with harissa-butter mixture. Close the lid and continue to cook 10 to 15 minutes more until the internal temperature registers 145℉.
  • 7

    Carefully remove the fish from the grill and place on a serving platter.
  • 8

    Drizzle the dressing over the greens, season to taste with salt and pepper and mix to coat.
  • 9

    Pile the salad over the top of the fish and drizzle the fish with remaining dressing if desired. Enjoy!
