I needed a sea bass recipe that was simple, barbecued and would go with mango salsa. This recipe was perfect!!! I would not change a thing! The mango salsa was a perfect compliment. This is so easy and so impressively yummy! Marie, thanks for posting!
I don't typically write reviews... this deserved one. Beyond impressed/satisfied. Couldn't offer any adjustments (besides the fact I used my broiler instead of the grill). I cut the recipe down to 1 serving, used a freshly caught whole black seabass, followed to a T besies doubling up on the crushed red pepper since I love the kick. At first I had thought the topping wouldn't be enough but it was the perfect amount. A+++ from me - thank you for helping me totally enjoy my catch from beginning to end. (will recommend)
Outstanding! It's officially in my top three fish recipes of all time, even though I just broiled mine instead of grilling it. A true keeper! Thank you.
