2 pounds red or black seedless
grapes, 1 pound quartered
2 scallions, finely chopped
2 small garlic cloves, minced
1/2 fresh red chile, such as Fresno,
seeded and minced
1/2 fresh green chile, such as serrano
or jalapeño, seeded and minced
1 teaspoon Sriracha chile sauce
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Ten 4- to 5-ounce skinless black cod
fillets (also known as sablefish)
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1. Preheat the oven to 350°. In a food processor, puree the whole
grapes. Pass the puree through a coarse sieve into a large bowl.
Add the quartered grapes, scallions, garlic, chiles and Sriracha to
the bowl and toss.
2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil until
shimmering. Season half of the fillets with salt and pepper and
add them to the skillet, skinned side up. Cook over high heat
until the fillets are golden brown on the bottom, about 3 minutes.
Transfer the fillets to a rimmed baking sheet. Repeat with the
remaining oil and fillets. Transfer the fish to the oven and cook
until just white throughout.
3. Add the cilantro and vinegar to the grape salsa and season with
salt. Transfer the fish to plates; spoon the salsa on top and serve.
MAKE AHEAD The salsa can stand at room temperature for up to
2 hours. The seared fish can be kept on the baking sheet for up to
30 minutes. Finish in the oven before serving.
