This was delicious! My guests all loved it, even the one with a prejudice against fish. I made it with black cod instead of sea bass.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Finely crush the allspice berries with a mortar and pestle, or grind them in a spice grinder.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the allspice with the chiles, garlic, onions, orange juice, orange zest, oil, salt and pepper.
  3. Stir to mix well.
  4. Preheat the grill.
  5. Set the sea bass fillets in a shallow dish and lightly spoon the marinade mixture over.
  6. Turn the fillets so they are evenly coated in the marinade and set aside for 10 to 15 minutes (chill if the ambient temperature is quite warm).
  7. Put the fish fillets on the hot grill, with the orange slices alongside.
  8. Cook until the fish is just opaque through, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  9. Turn the orange slices occasionally, so they brown evenly.
  10. Serve the grilled sea bass with grilled orange slices alongside.
