I honestly can't think of anything more decadent than a well cooked piece of sea bass. Due to the price and lack of availability, this is not something I cook often. But man, does it taste good. The flavor of sea bass is usually described as buttery. And who doesn't like butter? This fish has a high oil content similar to salmon and just like salmon, it also packs a ton of healthy omega-3s. This miso glaze preparation is super-quick and incredibly satisfying. Serve with spinach and new potatoes for a fantastic meal.Sea Bass
1/3 cup sake
1/3 cup mirin (sweet Japanese rice wine)
1/3 cup light yellow miso (fermented soybean paste)
3 tablespoons (packed) brown sugar substitute (such as Spenda)
2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
4 6-ounce sea bass fillets (each about 3/4 inch thick)
2 tablespoons chopped green onions
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1. Glaze: Mix first 5 ingredients in a bowl. Place fish in a zip-top bag. Pour marinade over fish. Seal the bag and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.
2. Cook: Preheat broiler. Remove fish from marinade. Place fish on rimmed baking sheet. Broil fish 6 inches from heat source until just opaque in center, about 6 minutes. Transfer to plates. Sprinkle with green onions and basil and serve.
