    Grilled Black Sea Bass

    This is my favorite Sea Bass recipe:

    4 whole Black Sea Bass (about 3/4 to 1 pound each) - cleaned, rinsed and dried
    4 garlic cloves, chopped
    2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
    1/4 cup sesame oil
    1/3 cup tamari soy sauce
    6 thin slices of fresh ginger, cut into thin strips
    4 sprigs fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
    4 thinly sliced green onions

    Make 2 slashes about 1/2" deep on each side of the fish. Place them flat in a single layer in a glass dish. Combine all the other ingredients, whisk well and then pour over the fish. Let the fish marinate for 30 minutes or more at room temp, turning once after 15 minutes.

    Place the fish in a hinged wire basket for ease of turning. Place over a med-hot grill and sear on one side for 2 minutes, then continue to cook further away from the heat until that side is done. Turn the fish over, spoon some of the marinade onto the cooked side and repeat the searing and cooking process for the other side.

    Serve with the remaining marinade on the side.

    This recipe will also work well for Striped Bass, grouper or other white fish, whole or fillets.
