Wonderful Bass with a great flavor. This is a keeper and so worth trying!!! From the lovely magazine: Food & Wine. Wine: Try an Alsatian Pinot Gris, such as the 1997 Domaine Ostertag Fronholz.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, combine the scallions, ginger, garlic and red pepper. In a saucepan, heat the oil until shimmering. Pour the hot oil over the scallion mixture and stir in the lemon juice, soy sauce and salt.
  2. Preheat the broiler. Brush the fillets on both sides with some of the scallion oil. Arrange on a broiler pan skinned side down; broil until just cooked through, about 5 minutes. Transfer the fillets to plates; spoon some scallion oil on top. Serve with the Stir-Fried Asparagus.
  3. Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the asparagus and stir-fry over moderately high heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, sesame oil and lemon zest, season with salt and pepper and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Serve hot.

I didn't make the asparagus, but I made the bass and it was delicious. I added the scallion mixture to the fish before baking. It was great! Thanks.

I made this dish with some fresh caught bass filets that my husband brought home from one of our mountain lakes. The only thing I changed was to broil the fish with some of the ginger-scallions on top. I served it with brown rice along side the fish and asparagus. It made a very pretty presentation and tasted even better than it looked. I will make this simple and tasty dish again.

I love the flavor of this marinate. I think I just don't like chilean bass. It is too greasy. The next time, I will try with striped bass.
