Expert Tips

You could use tuna or halibut fillets instead of the sea bass.

Sea bass describes several varieties of saltwater fish of the drum or grouper family. Sea bass has firm, lean to moderately fat flesh that can be baked, grilled, poached or fried. If there is skin on the fish, it can be removed with a very sharp knife.

Serve the grilled fish with wild rice salad from the deli and a sliced fresh tomato drizzled with Italian dressing.
