Ingredients

1 c
prepared chipotle salsa
1/2 c
prepared raspberry vinaigrette
2 Tbsp
olive oil
1 tsp
chipotle chili powder (to taste)
1/2 tsp
minced garlic
1 tsp

1/2 c

1 c
fresh raspberries, small strawberries or fresh orange sections
1/4 c

cotija cheese (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a small bowl, blend chipotle salsa and vinaigrette to make dressing; set aside.
2
In a separate small bowl, blend olive oil, chili powder, garlic, and sugar. Heat a heavy nonstick skillet over medium heat. Brush oil mixture on both sides of Alaska Cod fillets and place in heated skillet. Cook about 3 to 4 minutes, until browned. Turn fillets over and cook an additional 3 to 4 minutes, cooking just until fish is opaque throughout.
3
In a large bowl, combine lettuces, fennel, cilantro, raspberries, and onion.

To serve, portion about 2 cups salad mixture onto each of four plates. Top with a cod fillet and drizzle with 1/4 cup dressing. Sprinkle with Cotija cheese, if desired.
