Grilled Branzino

11 Aug

We have always enjoyed sea bass, and today we had an opportunity to buy European sea bass, branzino. I have eaten branzino at restaurant, but never grilled it my self. This recipe was nice and light.

  •  whole branzino—scaled and gutted
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • thyme sprig
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 2 lemons—1 thinly sliced, 1 cut into wedges
  • 1 tbs  olive oil

 Season the fish with salt and pepper. Stuff each cavity with a thyme sprig, a bay leaf, and 2 lemon slices. Rub the outside of the branzino with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.Grill the fish over high heat, turning once, until browned and crisp and just cooked through, about 7 minutes per side. I would recommend using a fish grilling basket for grilling this fish since it is quite thick with the ingredients.
