Grilled Bass filets with Strawberry Basil Bruschetta

This dish is light and fresh, a perfect meal on a hot summer evening.  I have served it with rice, roasted potatoes, various steamed vegetables or a salad and it has been a hit every time.  I hope you give this one a try, you will not be sorry and even the most picky eaters I have served have enjoyed this dish.

 

 

Grilled Sea Bass Filets

Ingredients

  • 1/4 C extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 T freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Few sprigs parsley
  • 1/8 t freshly ground pepper
  • 4 filets striped bass, skin on (about 6 ounces each)

Directions

  • Combine oil, lemon juice, parsley and pepper in a large shallow bowl
  • Add the fish to marinade, and turn to coat; cover with plastic wrap, and place in the refrigerator 30 minutes
  • Heat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat
  • Remove fish from marinade, letting excess drip off
  • Place on grill, and season with salt (skin side down if your filets have skin)
  • Grill until skin is lightly browned and starting to crisp
  • Carefully turn filets, and cook until well browned and cooked through (center will be opaque), 5 to 6 minutes

Mix everything in a medium mixing bowl

For best results, mix it up early in the day and allow to sit out for a few hours, so that the berries can soak up the flavors.

 

The flavours of the bruschetta compliment the fish and together they are absolutely delicious!
