the Ingredients

20151023095357 Row Seafood 2


  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 teaspoons dried lavender
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 skinless Chilean sea bass fillets, each about 6 ounces and 1 inch thick
  • Lemon wedges (optional)


  • 01 Prepare the grill to cook your sea bass with direct cooking over high heat (450° to 550°F).
  • 02 In a small bowl whisk the paste ingredients. Spread the paste evenly on both sides of the fillets.
  • 03 Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the sea bass fillets over direct high heat, with the lid closed, until the flesh is opaque throughout and starting to flake, 5 to 7 minutes, turning once. Remove from the grill and serve your perfectly cooked sea bass warm with lemon wedges, if desired.
