1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 small onion -- minced
2 cloves garlic -- minced
1 tablespoon minced chives
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped thyme
1/2 teaspoon minced seeded habanero chile
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon salt and freshly ground pepper
8 pounds fish -- such as red snapper, porgy or sea bass, cleaned
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 Cup vegetable oil
3 Cup white rice -- for serving

Preparation / Directions:

Sauce au chien is like an exotic vinaigrette made with herbs, chiles, aromatic vegetables and lime juice. It's a lively, pungent and spicy complement to all kinds of grilled foods. MAKE AHEAD: The sauce au chien can be refrigerated for 3 days. 1. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil with the parsley, onion, garlic, chives, thyme and chile. Whisk in the lime juice and season with salt and pepper. 2. Light a grill. Coat each fish lightly with flour, tapping off the excess. Oil the rack and grill the fish over a moderately hot fire until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Alternatively, heat 1/2 inch of vegetable oil in each of 2 large skillets and fry the fish over high heat until golden and crisp, about 5 minutes per side; drain on paper towels. Sprinkle the fish with salt and carefully transfer them to a large platter or dinner plates. Drizzle the sauce over the fish and serve right away, with rice
