Recipe by: Evan Kleiman, Cucina del Mare To prepare the pepper, remove
stem, seeds, and white ribs; cut into quarters. Cut squashes and eggplant
lengthwise into 1/4-inch thick slices o sticks. Use more basil than
parsley, Italian preferred. Select 3 to 4 ripe but firm tomatoes.

Heat a charcoal or gas grill or ridged stovetop griddle until very hot. Use
a towel dipped in oil to rub onto the grids. Lightly brush the fish fillet
and all sliced vegetables with oil. Begin by grilling the fish fille just
until cooked through. (The flaky structure of the fish will become
apparent.) Remove the fish from the grill with a spatula and set aside to
cool. Then grill the veggies until grill marks are clearly visible and the
vegetables soften. Remove the veggies from the grill with a spatula or
tongs, and set aside to cool.

When the fish is cool enough to handle, pull it apart into small pieces and
remove any bones. Cut the pepper into thin strips. In a medium bowl, combin
the fish, pepper strips, basil, parsley, minced garlic, extra-virgin olive
oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste. Cover the bowl with a kitche
towel and set aside to marinate at room temperature. Cut the zucchini and
eggplant into thin crosswise strips. Toss together in a small bowl and set

Just before you are ready to serve grill the tomatoes. When soft, transfer
with a spatula to a plate. To make the bruschetta, grill the bread slices o
both sides. As you remove the bread from the grill, rub one side of each
slice with the whole garlic clove and drizzle with a bit of oil. Flatten a
tomato half onto each slice of bread, rubbing it into the bread. Place the
bruschetta on a large platter. Top each piece with some zucchini and
eggplant strips and spoon on the fish salad. Garnish with chopped parsley.
Drizzle w/extra-virgin olive oil. Serve with lots of napkins.
