    1. In a small bowl, stir together the spices and olive oil. Generously coat the fish, and keep refrigerated until ready to grill.
    2. Preheat the grill to medium-high. Grill the fish for 6–8 minutes (depending on thickness) or until completely cooked, flipping halfway through. Let rest for 5 minutes, or refrigerate until ready to assemble the salad.
    3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the vinaigrette ingredients until combined. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
    4. Toss the salad ingredients together in a large bowl, and drizzle with the vinaigrette. Top with the grilled fish before serving.
Serves 4
