Whole Grill-roasted Sea Bass

Whole Grill-roasted Sea Bass

This technique applies to grill-roasting any fish.
1 2-3 LB Sea Bass, scaled
1 TBL Olive oil
Kosher salt
Fresh-ground black pepper
1 SLICE Lemon
1 SLICE Orange
1 SLICE Lime
2-3 LEAVES Basil (or whatever herb you prefer)
1 TSP Ancho chile powder
2 Green onions, chopped fine
1 Lemon

1. Rinse the fish under very cold water, then dry with a paper towel.
2. Cut 4 deep slits down each side of the fish.  Rub both sides of the fish well with olive oil.  Season to taste with Kosher salt and black pepper.
3. Place the slices of citrus and basil in the cavity of the fish.  Roast the fish on a very clean, medium-hot grill, turning only once.
4. After turning, sprinkle with chili powder and dress with green onions.  To check for doneness you can look inside the slits.  The rule of thumb for grilling fish 10 minutes of direct grilling for every inch of thickness.  You can indirectly grill after browning but use a different burner or if using a charcoal grill move the grate, as too many movements will cause the fish to fall apart.
5. Remove from grill; squeeze a little lemon over the fish and serve.
6. Serves 2.
