This dish is a wholesome delight that combines the smoky taste of grilled fish with the freshness of garden greens. It’s perfect for those warm summer evenings when you want something healthy and satisfying. So, let’s gather our ingredients and get cooking!


To make this zesty grilled fish with garden greens, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 4 fresh fish fillets (such as salmon or tilapia)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 cups mixed garden greens (such as spinach, arugula, and lettuce)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced

Preparing the Grilled Fish:

  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, paprika, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Mix well to create a zesty marinade.
  3. Place the fish fillets in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over them, making sure to coat each fillet evenly. Let the fish marinate for at least 15 minutes, allowing the flavors to infuse.
  4. Once the grill is hot, place the marinated fish fillets directly on the grill grates. Cook for approximately 4-5 minutes per side, or until the fish is opaque and easily flakes with a fork.
  5. Once cooked, remove the fish from the grill and set aside.

Preparing the Garden Greens:

  1. In a large bowl, combine the mixed garden greens, cherry tomatoes, cucumber slices, and red onion.
  2. Toss the salad with your favorite dressing or a simple vinaigrette made with a splash of olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.


Now that our zesty grilled fish and garden greens are ready, it’s time to assemble our plates! Place a generous portion of the mixed garden greens on each plate, and top it with a perfectly grilled fish fillet. The combination of flavors and textures will make every bite a delight for your taste buds.

Serving Suggestions:

This wholesome dish pairs well with a side of roasted potatoes or steamed rice. For an extra burst of freshness, you can also serve it with a squeeze of lemon juice over the fish. Don’t forget to garnish with a sprig of fresh herbs, such as parsley or dill, for an added touch of elegance.
