Striped Bass with Cilantro-Onion Salad

    Saw this in latest issue of cooking light, and thought it looked delicious since I happen to love all ingredients. The fact that it is a staff favorite made it on my menu this weekend. Unfortunately there was no striped bass available in my area, but I was able to substitute halibut which I love (I read that other good substitutions for striped sea bass other than halibut are black sea bass and cod). Anyway, I made the recipe exactly as written and added some black beans to our plates to just round it out and make it more substantial (plus I love black beans and with a Mexican vibe to the recipe thought they would mesh well, and they did). This recipe is so delicious, I must have said so a handful of times if not more. Everything about it is so simple and yet it could be on a menu of a highly rated restaurant. It's dishes like these that make me wonder why we would ever go out to eat again, it was seriously that good. Just try it, you won't be sorry.

    This was really easy and delicious. I was concerned that the cilantro onion salad wouldn't be a good side but the flavors together worked great. I used flounder, without skin, instead of bass.
