This is an awesome sea bass recipe! Sea bass is one of my favorite fish, especially when it’s super fresh. We don’t have the really big sea bass in our southern waters, but we do have some delicious black sea bass. I landed my first sea bass about thirty years ago on a charter fishing boat out of Isle of Hope, which is near Savannah, Georgia. We caught several sea bass that day, and we took them straight to our condo and cooked them. I was hooked on sea bass!

Holle’s Teriyaki Grilled Sea Bass recipe

What you’ll need:

  • 6 serving-size sea bass fillets, about ¾ – 1 inch thick
  • Peanut oil
  • salt
  • Ground ginger
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon diced red bell pepper
  • Minced garlic, to taste
  • ½ cup teriyaki sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 6 pineapple slices
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rum

Directions: Rinse sea bass fillets and pat dry. Brush fish with peanut oil and sprinkle with salt and ground ginger. Cover and refrigerate.

Meanwhile, make the sauce. In one tablespoon peanut oil, saute onions and bell pepper  until soft. Add garlic and cook for one minute. Add teriyaki sauce and sugar and reduce heat to simmer. Cook until sauce thickens.

Remove fish from fridge and place on medium grill. Using a fish basket makes this task easier. Sea bass will need to cook for 5-7 minutes per side.

While the fish are grilling, grill the pineapple. Combine the butter, brown sugar, and rum until sugar dissolves. Brush on pineapple.

Remove fish from grill. Place a pineapple ring on each fillet. Spoon teriyaki sauce on top.
