Here's our chef-approved recipe for a whole sushi-grade Massachusetts Black Sea Bass!
- 1 whole sushi-grade Massachusetts black sea bass (about 2 pounds)
- 1 fresh lemon, sliced
- 1 fresh lime, sliced
- 2 cloves of fresh garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon of fresh ginger, grated
- 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- 1 tablespoon of premium olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Fresh cilantro for garnish
Preheat your oven to 375°F.
Rinse the whole sea bass under cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
Using a sharp knife, make diagonal cuts on both sides of the fish, about 1 inch apart. This will help the fish cook evenly and allow the seasoning to penetrate the flesh.
Season the fish inside and out with salt and pepper.
Stuff the cavity of the fish with lemon and lime slices, minced garlic, and grated ginger.
In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, honey, and olive oil. Brush the mixture all over the fish, making sure to coat it evenly.
Place the fish in a baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
Garnish with fresh cilantro and serve with steamed rice or your favorite side dish.
