Directions See How It's Made
- For shallot-thyme vinaigrette: mix oil, vinegars, shallots, mustard, thyme and salt and set aside.
- Place fish steaks, shrimp and 1/4 cup of the vinaigrette in shallow glass or plastic dish. Turn fish and shrimp to coat. Cover and chill 1 hour. Reserve remaining vinaigrette.
- Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat.
- Remove fish and shrimp from marinade: reserve marinade. Cover and grill fish and fennel 5 to 6 inches from medium heat 5 minutes: brush with marinade. Add shrimp. Cover and grill 5 to 15 minutes, turning and brushing fish, fennel and shrimp with marinade 2 or 3 times, until shrimp are pink and firm and fish flakes easily with fork, and fennel is tender. Discard any remaining marinade.
- Arrange romaine and arugula on serving platter. Cut fish into bit-sized pieces. Arrange romaine and arugula on romaine mixture. Serve with remaining vinaigrette.
