Prep Directions:

  • FISH Selection – Check with your local grocery store or fish market
    • Sea bass or Halibut (when in season)
    • Free from bloodline
    • Skinless
    • 8oz thick steak cut
    • FRESH, Not frozen or previously frozen (if possible)


Cooking Directions:

Preheat Weber Grill to 450 Degrees
Lightly Oil the Sea bass Filet on both sides
Mix the Rub A Dub, Oil, Garlic, Lemon Juice and Fishy Fishy Together
Adjust seasoning amounts as needed
Season both sides of the Sea bass with 2/3 of the seasoning/oil mixture – reserve 1/3 for later use
Allow to sit for 5 minutes to allow the rub to soak in and activate
Open the grill and place the perforated grilling pan on the grill, close lid and heat for 2 minutes
Open the lid and add cast iron pan to grill to heat up and be ready for spinach
Next Place the seasoned sea bass on the perforated grilling pan and close the lid
Cook the seabass to the desired doneness, being careful not to burn or ignite the cedar plank
I recommend cooking fish to a temp of 145˚, this will be opaque in color and firm
When the sea bass is getting close to your desired doneness (within the last 5 minutes of cooking)
Using a silicone brush
Baste top of the sea bass with more of the seasoning/oil mixture
Close the lid and allow glaze for 1-2 minutes
Add to the cast iron pan 2 tbsp of the lemon butter and let melt
Add the Roma tomatoes and spinach and season if desired
Cook the spinach until it is fully wilted BUT still bright green.  Use tongs to stir spinach
Remove spinach and place onto the center of a plate
Remove grilled fish from the grill pan, using a spatula and place on top of the spinach, on the plate
Garnish with
Chopped Italian Parsley
Sliced Lemons
Lemon butter
