This is my favorite fish recipe. The combination of ginger and the cilantro is to die for. Just add some white rice and a rum punch and you'll think you're on a Caribbean vacation! Although the recipe says Sea Bass, you can use any mild flavored fish and have excellent results. I've tried this with grouper, snapper, mahi-mahi and cod. The recipe calls for 4 hours or marinating time, but I often only have about an hour - and it tastes great just the same! The recipe is from La Jolla Cooks, a fundraising cookbook for La Jolla Country Day School
