This recipe gives you dinner party elegance in a 20-minute dish. We rely on sea bass, a tender, mild-flavored fish with a lovely buttery quality. There are several sustainable options to choose from (Atlantic black sea bass, for one), so ask questions at the fish counter to ensure you're making a responsible choice. You can also use cod, sablefish (also called black cod), striped bass, or barramundi with great results.
2 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
3/4 teaspoon black pepper, divided
1/2 teaspoon paprika
4 (6-oz.) skinless sea bass fillets
1 small pink grapefruit
1 small navel orange
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
1/4 cup thinly vertically sliced white onion
Est. added sugars 0g
How to Make It
Preheat broiler to high with oven rack 6 to 8 inches from heat.
Combine 1 1/2 teaspoons oil, 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper, and paprika. Place fish on a baking sheet; rub with paprika mixture. Broil fish until beginning to brown and fish flakes easily with a fork, 10 to 12 minutes. Keep warm.
Peel grapefruit and orange. Using a small knife, cut fruit into segments, and coarsely chop. Whisk together cilantro, lime juice, garlic, 2 tablespoons oil, and 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper; stir in onion and citrus segments. Spoon salsa over fish.

We used halibut tonight. My only complaint is that broiling the fish seemed to cook it well on top, but not all the way through. I wound up putting it in the microwave to fully cook because the top was getting too brown after 15 minutes. Great salsa though. Nice combination of flavors. Will make again - would also work well with salmon.
I made this in November for guests and I made it again tonight. It is light, easy and delicious. We aren't able to get Chilean Sea Bass very often anymore but when I see it I buy it. We served with rice and roasted asparagus.......YUMMY
