Citrus-Baked Sea Bass Recipe

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 4 sea bass fillets* (4-5 oz. each)
  • 1/4 tsp salt, divided
  • 1/8 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 1 red onion, cut in half
  • 1 lime, cut in half
  • 2 oranges, peeled
  • 1/2 ripe avocado, peeled and cubed
  • 1/2 cup finely diced jicama
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tsp minced fresh jalapeno chile

*Note: If you can't find sea bass, substitute cod or halibut. Because these varieties of fish are low in fat and calories, you can splurge on a slightly larger portion.

Preparation

  1. Heat oven to 400F.
  2. Sprinkle fish with 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper.
  3. Place fish in glass baking dish.
  4. Cut one half onion into thin slices. Cut 4 thin slices from half of lime. Arrange lime and onion slices on each fillet.
  5. Bake fillets 12 to 15 minutes, or until just cooked.
  6. While fillets are baking, remove white pith from oranges; cut into segments, then cut each segment in half. Transfer orange pieces to small bowl.
  7. Mince 1 tablespoon onion from remaining onion half and squeeze 1 tablespoon lime juice from remaining lime half; add to orange pieces with avocado, jicama, cilantro, jalapeno, and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt. Serve with baked fish.
