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: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: California Poppies

Spring has arrived.  On Wednesday, I took off for a few hours to hike.  The weather was perfect:  the sun was shining, the wind kept itself to a cool, slight breeze (as opposed to Thursday, when the sustained wind speed was 37.5 mph), and the temperature was warm, but not oppressive.  

My Ten Things of Thankful list this week will be mostly made of photos.  Each time I climbed another hill, or turned another corner, I was delighted with the new view.  Come along with me!

The poppy fields can be seen from miles away.

Many other people had the same idea I had on Wednesday. The line to get into the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve was longer than I've ever seen it. Many cars turned around and decided to just park on the main street and hike into the reserve.

Once I finally got the car parked and started to hike, I was greeted with wonderful views.  I hiked the steepest and furthest trails, and was rewarded by moments of solitude.
