Butter Braised Cod Fillets with Avocado, Scallion Relish

Dinner last night was based off of pure experimentation, to which happened to turn out in my favor! I bought the cheapest fish at Trader Joe's and doctored it up with a lemon, garlic, butter and fresh chive pan sauce. As for the garnish, I pureed roasted scallions, avocado, garlic, chili powder, cumin, lemon and olive oil to create an earthy, bright accompaniment to the delicate fish. I have posted my relish recipe below for your experimentation!

Avocado & Scallion Relish
Makes about 2 cups 

1 large avocado
11/2 cup chopped scallions, pan seared until tender 
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp minced fresh garlic 
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tsp fresh minced garlic 
Pinch salt and pepper 

In a blender, pulse all ingredients together until smooth. If the mixture is too thick, add a tad more lemon and olive oil. Serve relish as a chip dip, veggie dip or on top of your favorite fish or seafood.
