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.

Never Give Up Hope

Twenty-three years ago, a beautiful little girl was born. From the get-go, she was sweet, sensitive, and rather shy. She has grown into a young woman of whom I am so proud. She has worked hard to overcome challenges, and recently told me she is trying to face her fears, and asked me if I would write her story and share it here on the blog, in hopes she can inspire others through their own struggles. Although I offered to publish an auto-biographical piece for her, she wanted me to write her story from my perspective. At her request, and with her approval of this post, I share the following:
The phone rang, and the social worker on the other end informed me that a baby girl had been born 10 weeks early and drug-exposed. She wasn't ready to be released from the medical facility where she was currently staying, but would we be interested in being her foster-to-adopt parents? Of course! When John and I filled out our paperwork, we indicated that we were comfortable with a premature bab…

Six Sentence Story: Burst

The moment the church organist started playing the introduction to the hymn, the precocious toddler girl stood up on the pew. Music just moved her, and she was doubly excited when she realized she recognized the tune. Though everyone around her was opening a hymnal and finding the right page, that was unnecessary for her. 
First of all, she couldn't read, but second, even if she could read, she didn't need the words; they were etched into her memory. Finally, the organist finished the introduction and the chorister signaled the congregation to begin, but while the rest of the church-goers sang, "Lord, dismiss us with thy blessing," the sweet little girl belted out, "Go tell Aunt Rhody." By the time she got to the line about the old grey goose being dead, all decorum was lost as those around her burst out laughing.

Six Sentence Story: Release

Her small brow furrowed in concentration as she carefully placed the wriggling worm on the little hook. 

"Ready, Daddy!" she called, and Daddy came over and helped her cast the line into the lake. To the amazement of both of them, soon the bobber took a dip into the water. Daddy talked her through reeling the keeper-sized fish onto the shore.

"I'll name him Lucky, because he is lucky I caught him!" she proudly announced.

Lucky's luck ran out, though, when he realized this wasn't going to be a catch-and-release situation.
