Let's Make It
Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Place fish in large resealable plastic bag. Add combined dressing and Parmesan cheese; seal bag. Turn bag over several times to evenly coat fish with the dressing mixture. Marinate in refrigerator until ready to use.
Thread chorizo and garlic evenly onto skewers. Grill 7 to 8 min. or until chorizo is cooked through, turning occasionally. Remove chorizo and garlic from skewers; cut into thin slices. Place in small saucepan. Add tomatoes and oregano; mix well. Bring to boil on medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low; simmer 10 min., stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, remove fish from marinade; discard bag and marinade. Grill fish 4 to 5 min. on each side or until fish flakes easily with fork. Place fish on individual plates or serving platter; top each fillet with 1/2 cup of the tomato mixture and 2 Tbsp. of the mozzarella cheese.
Serve with a mixed green salad for added color and texture.
The name "cancato" comes from the indigenous Indian word for grilling. In Chile, this recipe is typically prepared with a whole fish that is opened like a book, topped with the chorizo, cheese and garlic mixture, then grilled flat.
