This recipe is really good just as it is written. I went with 4 minutes per side. And it is great for fish tacos too. We did that with the leftovers on day 2. Five stars!

Delicious! The only thing I changed is olive oil for the butter. Simple, yet impressive.

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!
