How to Make It

Step 1    

In a small bowl, combine the olive oil with the parsley, onion, garlic, chives, thyme and chile. Whisk in the lime juice and season with salt and pepper.

Step 2    

Light a grill. Coat each fish lightly with flour, tapping off the excess. Oil the rack and grill the fish over a moderately hot fire until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Alternatively, heat 1/2 inch of vegetable oil in each of 2 large skillets and fry the fish over high heat until golden and crisp, about 5 minutes per side; drain on paper towels. Sprinkle the fish with salt and carefully transfer them to a large platter or dinner plates. Drizzle the sauce over the fish and serve right away, with rice.

Make Ahead

The sauce au chien can be refrigerated for 3 days.

Suggested Pairing

This strong, spicy sauce calls for a bright Australian Riesling with vibrant lime flavors, such as those from South Australia or Eden Valley.
