Chilean Sea Bass Ingredients

Ingredients:

For the Spinach Basil Sauce:

  • 2 cups Fresh Spinach, washed and packed tightly
  • ¼ cup Fresh Basil, washed and loosely packed
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, peeled
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • ¼ cup Water
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste

For the Chilean Sea Bass and Potatoes:

  • ½ pound small baby potatoes
  • 2 Sizzlefish Chilean Sea Bass Fillets
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 TBSP Olive Oil
  • ¼ cup Greek Yogurt
  • Basil Leaves, for garnish

Instructions:

  1. To make the Spinach Basil Sauce: Add the spinach, basil, garlic, lemon juice, water, salt and pepper to a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth, scraping the sides down half way through processing. Set aside while you prepare the fish and potatoes
  2. Place the potatoes in a medium pot covered with water. Bring to a boil and cook until fork tender. This will take about 10 minutes
  3. Place a large heavy metal skillet over medium-high heat until skillet gets hot. Pat the Chilean sea bass fillets dry with paper towel and season with salt and pepper. Next, pour the olive oil into the hot pan. Then, place the fillets gently in the heated pan. Allow the fish to cook 4 minutes or until the fillet releases easily from the pan. Carefully flip the fillets and cook an additional 2 to 4 minutes or until the fillets reach an internal temperature of 135 degrees F.
  4. Plate the fish by spooning the spinach basil sauce onto the plate, then placing the Chilean Sea Bass fillet on top of the sauce. Place the potatoes next to the fish and finish the plating with a dollop of Greek yogurt next to the fillet.
