Serving Size: Serves 4 Ingredients
  • 2 lbs Chilean Sea Bass (cut into 4 equal fillets (skin on))
  • Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 2 Sprigs Thyme
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice (fresh)
  • Heat up a large heavy-bottomed skillet over a high heat. *Don't use a non-stick pan* - Add in enough canola oil to lightly coat the bottom of the pan. Once smoking hot, season your fish with salt on both sides , and place in the pan, skin side down. Once you can see that the fish has cooked halfway up the side of the fillet, flip it over (about 2-3 minutes).
  • At this point, add in your butter and thyme - baste the fish with a spoon. When you see the fish is almost completely done cooking (about 2-3 minutes), add in your lemon juice and cook another 10 seconds.. Remove the fish from the pan and serve with some of the sauce ladled over it.
