Scallion Roasted Fish w/ Black Lentil & Pea Salad

A light, bright and healthy summery dish with lots of great textures and fresh flavours, fish and pulses are a perfect pairing; this dish comes together quickly!  You can cook the lentils in advance if you wish.  I used flounder for this recipe; choose whichever fish is fresh in season from your local fishmonger.
