Grilled Sea Bass with Thyme and Garlic Butter

My husband is away on an overseas business trip for the past week (meaning less cooking :p)

Usually I will eat whatever leftover from the kids' dinner. However, I had a piece of Seabass in the fridge that I wanted to clear, so I made a simple dinner for myself yesterday instead of having leftovers.

I had the sea bass grilling in the oven while I worked on the sides. This also means less cleaning up. You can pan-fry it too. You can have to watch over it so it will burn.

Ingredients for Grilled Sea bass:
  • 1 slice Sea bass
  • 1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 2 sprig Fresh Thyme
  • Salt and Ground Black Pepper to taste

Ingredients for Zesty Garlic Butter:
  • 2 clove Garlic, minced
  • Zest of 1 Lemon
  • 1 tablespoon Butter

Ingredients for Mashed Cauliflower:
  • 230g Cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1/3 tablespoon Butter
  • 1 tablespoon Parmesan Cheese (optional)
  • Salt to taste

How to do it:
  1. Clean and pat dry sea bass.
  2. Mix herbs and spice ingredients for sea bass together.
  3. Rub all over the sea bass and set aside for 15 mins.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the zesty garlic butter but mixing all ingredients together.
  5. Spread half of the butter on the skin side of the seabass.
  6. Grilled the sea bass on rack in preheat oven at 250C for 8 mins, longer if you want the skin browned.
  7. Turn over, spread the remaining butter and continue to grill for another 8 mins.
  8. While the sea bass is grilling in the oven, prepare the cauliflower.
  9. Steam the cauliflower florets for 10 mins. You can blanch them too.
  10. Drain well and pour into a blender.
  11. Add the butter and half of the parmesan cheese.
  12. Blend till smooth.
  13. Add salt to taste.
  14. Scoop out onto a plate and sprinkle the remaining parmesan cheese.
  15. You can bake it in the oven to brown it if you like.
  16. Remove sea bass from oven and serve together with the mashed cauliflower.
