Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Oven-Baked Sea Bass


The farm-share delivery service that I subscribe to has recently joined up with a community supported fishery, so now not only can I pick up produce each week, I can also bring home fresh-from-the-Pacific fish. 



This past weekend was the first time I had ordered fish through the CSF.  Much like the produce box, I didn't know ahead of time what kind of seafood I would receive.  When John picked up the produce box, he came home with sea bass, too.

I had never cooked sea bass before, so I searched online for a recipe.  I followed this recipe.  When I make it again, I will use the following revisions:

Oven-Baked Sea Bass

1 pound sea bass steak
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
fresh basil--I used 1 or 2 tablespoons

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Put fish in a glass baking dish.  Pour vinegar over fish.  In a small bowl, mix garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper, then rub fish with the mixture.  Bake for 15 minutes.  Sprinkle with basil and bake an additional 5 minutes.  


Do you have a favorite fish recipe?

  1. I love fresh fish, but my options are quite limited since I live inland. I am eager to try your recipe on some frozen fish.

  2. You are so lucky -- we subscribe to a CSA box but seafood is not an option. But who knows, maybe that will change. I love sea bass and have always just topped it with a heavy dose of lemon pepper, butter and sliced lemons but I will definitely try it your way! Enjoy.

  5. Sea Bass is one of my favorites. When I was growing up in San Diego, my parents had a friend who frequently went sport fishing and would share what he caught with us. Lucky you!!!

  6. That looks SO delicious! I'll have to pin this recipe, always looking for yummy fish recipes. I usually make a pesto of olive oil, garlic, ginger, pinch of soy sauce and basil, cilantro and whatever other herbs I have on hand. I top with salt, pepper and sprinkle with Old Bay seafood seasoning, which is heavy paprika.

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another
