Meanwhile, prepare the tomato ginger compote. Blanch fresh tomatoes, remove the skin and chop fine (keeping the liquid). Heat oil. Sauté onion and chopped garlic. Add white wine and chopped tomatoes. Add a little salt and crushed peppercorns and finish when it acquired a sauce-like consistency.

Prepare all the plate vegetables, blanch, cool and keep aside. Grill the fish skin on the flat griddle, turning both sides. Toss entire vegetables using a little butter or olive oil and salt. Turn into serving plates and top it up with the grilled fish. Pour tomato sauce partly on fish and vegetables. Garnish with parsley sprigs and lemon quarters.
