- 2 tablespoons paprika
- 1 tablespoon garlic salt
- 1 tablespoon dried thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
- 3 tablespoons butter or Olive Oil
- 4 corvina sea bass steaks 4-6 oz each
- 1 lemon cut into wedges
- fresh dill sprig minced
How to Make It
Step 1: Preheat your grill to medium heat
Step 2: Combine paprika, garlic salt, thyme, black pepper and red pepper to create a spice rub.
Step 3: Melt the butter and pour into a bowl. (I use half butter & half olive oil)
Step 4: Dip each piece of fish in the butter, then sprinkle if with the spice mixture.
Step 5: Place the fish on well oiled grill (on a grill pan) and grill the fish steaks for 3-4 minutes, covred with a lid. Turn the fish with a spatula then cook for 3-4 minutes on the other side. (I personally found cooking times to be ~25 minutes overall.)
Step 6: Serve each blackened corvina steak with a sprinkle of dill over the top and accompanying lemon wedge.
To reduce the amount of saturated fat in this dish can use any 3 Tbsp combination of butter and olive oil. Corvina is high in protein, but very low in fat.
To reduce the spiciness of the dish, omit the ground red pepper. To make it hotter, increase the amount of red pepper to 2 tsp.
Be sure to use corvina while fresh; this type of fish spoils quickly.
