If cooking the Chilean sea bass on a charcoal grill, be sure that the fillet pieces are at least 1½ inches thick to ensure that the fish won't fall apart when it is cooked.
- This recipe yields 4 servings.
- 1 lb Chilean sea bass fillet - (to 1½ lbs) bones removed, cut into serving pieces
- ¾ cup orange juice
- 3 tbsp tomato paste
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 2 tbsp vinegar
- 1 tbsp brown sugar or honey
- 2 garlic cloves minced or pressed
- 1 tsp grated orange zest
- 1 tsp ginger ground
- ½ tsp dried hot red pepper flakes
- Rinse the Chilean sea bass with cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
- Set the fish in a shallow dish.
- Stir together the remaining ingredients in a small bowl until well combined, then pour over the fish, turning the fish so that it is evenly coated.
- Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 to 3 hours.
- Preheat a charcoal grill or the broiler.
- Grill or broil the fish about 4 inches from the heat until well browned on one side, 3 to 5 minutes; brush with more marinade and cook on the other side until the fish is no longer opaque in the center, about 5 minutes longer.
