  • 4 sea bass filets, about 8 ounces each
  • 1/2 cup Tahini
  • Juice from a lemon
  • Salt and pepper

Lemon Herb Marinade

  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Herbs de Provence (can substitute Italian herb mixture or just mix dried oregano, thyme and rosemary)
  • 1 teaspoon salt and pepper


  • 1 Marinate the Sea Bass filets in the marinade for 30 minutes.
  • 2 Heat the grill to medium high and sear the fish, flesh side down. After 3-4 minutes, flip, using both tongs and a spatula, and reduce heat to low.
  • 3 Cover the lid and cook for a few more minutes or until the fish is white and firm.
  • 4 Remove, tent with foil and allow to rest for a few minutes.
  • 5 Meanwhile, mix the tahini with fresh lemon juice, salt and thin with a little water. Stir until combined.
  • 6 If the mixture is thick peanut butter consistency, continue to add water until it's the same consistency as honey.
  • 7 Serve by spooning the tahini over the fish.
