Grilled Garlic Butter Sea Bass

This is an incredibly delicious, yet simple way to prepare sea bass. The garlic butter sauce blends nicely with the mild flavor of this light and flaky fish. Serve with grilled vegetables or over the starch of your choice.

  • 2 pounds sea bass Atlantic or Chilean
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • juice of 1 large lemon
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh Italian parsley finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  • Preheat grill for medium-high heat.
  • To prepare butter sauce: combine butter, lemon juice, garlic and parsley in a small saucepan. Remove from heat once the butter has melted; about 2 minutes on the stove top.
  • Combine sea salt, onion powder, paprika, pepper, and salt in a small bowl. Sprinkle on all exposed flesh of fish.
  • Place fish on a well oiled grate and cook for 7 minutes. Using a large spatula, carefully turn fish and coat with butter sauce. Cook for 7 more minutes. Once fish reaches an internal temperature of 135-140 degrees F, it is done.
  • Remove from heat, plate, and drizzle with olive oil before serving. Garnish with chopped tomatoes or your favorite toppings.
