Grilled Sea Bass with Fennel and Olives

I made this last night and it was quite good. I served it with a piece of garlic crostini, which gave a little crunch to the dish.

2 sea bass filets
1/2 pint good Greek olives, pitted and smashed
1 medium bulb fennel, sliced thin
1/2 medium onion, sliced thin
4 garlic cloves, halved
1/4 C fennel fronds, chopped
1 Tbs fresh thyme leaves
1 Tbs fresh rosemary, chopped
1/2 C olive oil
Zest and juice of one lemon
Salt and pepper

Combine the lemon zest, herbs, and olive oil. Season both sides of the filets with salt and pepper and rub with a little olive oil. Place on the grill and cook until the fish is beginning to flake and turn opaque. Flip over, drizzle with half the herbed oil, and cook through.

Meanwhile, sautee the fennel, olives, and onion with the remaining herbed oil and garlic until soft. When the fish is done, serve over a bed of lightly dressed greens and top with the fennel and olives.
