"While this recipe for grilled sea bass with an Asian chile-lime dressing is super-fast and easy, it doesn't taste or look super-fast and easy. Your guests will be impressed, and it will be our little secret. I served mine with some caramelized parsnips."

Super fast and easy, yes; but, watch added salt. Only change... I brushed the fillets before grilling with half the dressing instead of extra oil. I’m sure I’ll prepare this again.

Amazing. Just do it like the recipe says. You won’t be disappointed.

This was so much fun to make, and the chili sauce was just amazing!

Love! Super easy. I did a little more Asian style with some sautéed bok choy, mushrooms and bean sprouts. You really can’t go wrong sea bass.
