  1. Halve and stone the avocado and use a teaspoon to scoop chunks of the flesh into a bowl. Gently mix all the other ingredients, except the fish, in with the avocado, then set aside.

  2. Heat a griddle pan until very hot. Season the fish with pepper, and salt if you want, then drizzle with a little olive oil. Griddle the fillets for 2-3 mins on each side until charred and cooked through. Serve with the avocado salad.

As its heavy with snow today I chose to cook the avocado salsa, in the same pan as the fish, used Avocado, mushrooms and tomatoes, seasoned with various peppers, black, lemon and garlic.

Served with lemon flavoured cous cous, we really enjoyed it :-)

Did this as a quick supper after Golf - loved it!

Added a small green (hot) chilli to the salsa, drizzled the fish with garlic oil and freshly ground white pepper before grilling in a General George. Served the whole lot with boiled potatoes tossed in melted butter with pressed garlic and chopped spring onion.

Perfect - and ready in about 30mins.

I've just made this dish, sorry really didnt like it at all. I dont think the salsa is good with the fish either, the onion made the fish taste off, it wasnt! looks good, was looking forward to it, but tasted not as good

Really tasty - the avocado salsa compliments the fish very well. Will definitely try it with ciabatta slices next time.
