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.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Whisk garlic, lime zest, rice vinegar, fish sauce, lime juice, chile pepper sauce, and sesame oil in a glass bowl.

  • Brush both sides of sea bass fillets with vegetable oil and sprinkle lightly with salt.

  • Cook on the preheated grill until fish is opaque, shows good grill marks, and springs back when pressed lightly, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer fillets to a serving platter.

  • Whisk dressing again; taste and and adjust seasoning. Drizzle dressing over warm fish. Sprinkle fillets with cilantro leaves.

Cook's Note:

An easy technique for mincing garlic is to shred it on a Microplane(R).
