Citrus Tilapia en Papillote with Grilled Summer Relish

For the Fish:
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons grated ginger
1 clove garlic, mashed
Zest of 1 lemon
Zest and juice of 1 orange
Four 4-ounce tilapia fillets
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 cups fresh baby spinach, for serving

For the Grilled Summer Relish:
2 scallions, white and pale green parts only
1 ear corn
1 orange bell pepper
1 yellow squash, halved lengthwise
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from about 1 lemon)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon white wine vinegar

Preheat the grill to medium heat. Brush the scallions, corn, bell pepper and squash on both sides with the oil. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon salt and 1 teaspoon pepper. Set aside. Fold four sheets of foil in half crosswise to crease, and then unfold. Combine the oil, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, lemon zest, orange zest and orange juice in a small bowl. Mix well to combine. Place 1 fillet on one side of the crease on each sheet of foil and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Divide the oil mixture equally among the fillets. Working with 1 foil sheet at a time, fold the foil over the fillet and tightly crimp the edges of the foil to close the packets to create a papillote. Place each papillote on the grill and close the lid of the grill. Grill until the papillotes are fully puffed, about 12 minutes. Grill the vegetables until slightly charred and just tender, turning often, about 5 minutes for the scallions, 8 minutes for the squash and pepper and 10 minutes for the corn.

For Grilled Summer Relish: Transfer the vegetables to a cutting board and cut into 1/4-inch pieces. Cut the corn from the cob directly into a bowl and mix in the scallions, peppers and squash. Meanwhile whisk the lemon juice, oil, vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Add the oil mixture to the bowl of vegetables; toss to coat.

Carefully cut the foil packets to open and serve the fillets on the spinach and top with the Grilled Summer Relish.
