4 (6-ounce) Chilean sea bass fillets (about 1 inch thick)
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
4 lemon wedges
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 375°.
Cook cumin seeds in a large skillet over medium heat 2 minutes or until toasted. Place cumin, salt, and pepper in a spice or coffee grinder; process until finely ground. Rub cumin mixture over top and bottom sides of fillets.
Heat oil in pan over medium-high heat. Add fillets; cook for 2 minutes on each side or until browned. Wrap handle of pan with foil. Bake at 375° for 4 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Sprinkle with parsley; serve with lemon wedges.
Please do not buy Chilean sea bass. This is a fish caught in the Ross Sea area of the Antarctic Ocean, perhaps the last remaining pristine marine environment on earth. This fish - its real name is the Antarctic toothfish - is crucial to the ecosystem there. Currently we are campaigning to stop the fishing, and the possible fatal impact on whales and seals.

Quick, simple, excellent flavor! Definitely "guest worthy". My only recommendation is to double the amount of spice recommended. I used the quantities in the recipe when making the dish for just two people and it was perfect.
This is a great recipe! I made it for the first time. I only had ground cumin on hand. So I used about 1 1/2 tsp. of ground cumin. I toasted the ground cumin and combined it with freshly ground pepper, and salt. Came out great!
