1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives1 teaspoon chopped fresh thymeKosher salt and freshly ground black pepperExtra virgin olive oil1 1/2 pounds halibut fillet, 1 to 1/4-inch cubes2 small yellow summer squash, about 12 ounces, cut into 1-inch cubes 2 small green zucchini, 12 ounces, cut into 1-inch cubes Bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutesPistachio Mint Salsa Verde
Mix the mint, oregano, chives and thyme in a small bowl. Add salt and pepper and 2 tablespoon olive oil. Stir together and add the fish. Stir gently to combine. Using a vegetable peeler or mandolin, slice lengthwise down the sides of squash until you have paper-thin slices, discarding the seeds. Heat an outdoor grill or indoor cast-iron ridged grill to medium-high. Toss the squash ribbons with 1 tablespoon olive oil in a small bowl until well coated. Alternately, thread the halibut and squash ribbons onto the skewers weaving the ribbons over and under so you have a wave effect. Season with salt and pepper. Place the skewers on a hot grill and grill on one side until the halibut has light golden grill marks, about 2 minutes. Turn them and continue cooking another 2 minutes. Remove from grill and place on serving plates. Serve with the Pistachio Mint Salsa Verde.
