Lime-Marinated Grilled Sea Bass

If you can't find sea bass, substitute grouper since they're from the same family. Grouper fillets are not as thick, though, so you'll need to cut the grilling time.

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons olive oil

1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; add fish fillets. Seal bag securely, and shake gently to coat fillets. Marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes.

2. Prepare grill.

3. Coat grill rack with cooking spray; place on grill over hot coals (400° to 500°). Remove fish from marinade, reserving marinade. Place fish fillets on rack; grill, covered, 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

4. Place reserved marinade in a small saucepan, and bring to a boil; remove from heat. To serve, spoon hot marinade over fish.
