Directions

Whisk dressing, lemon zest and juice until blended.

For each serving: Brush 1 fillet with 1/2 Tbsp. (7 mL) dressing mixture; let stand 15 min. at room temperature. Grill, skin-side up, on medium heat 8 to 10 min. or until fish flakes easily with a fork, turning halfway.

Meanwhile, grill 1 baguette portion 4 min. or until toasted, turning frequently. Remove from grill; tent with foil to keep warm. Grill 1 romaine half, cut-side down, 1 min. or until charred. Transfer to serving plate. Cube bread and scatter over and around lettuce.

Top with fish and 1 Tbsp. (15 mL) cheese. Drizzle with 1 Tbsp. (15 mL) of the remaining dressing mixture.
