Preheat grill to medium. Brush the grill grates with oil. Toss the carrots, scallions, and lime juice in a small bowl. Set aside.

Brush the fish with the oil and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Grill the fish, covered, until it no longer sticks to the grate, about 4 minutes. Carefully flip, using a metal spatula, and grill, uncovered, until the fish flakes easily, about 2 minutes. Remove from grill.

Grill the bread until toasted, about 1 minute per side.
