Sea Bass Over Creamy Polenta Recipe Instructions


  • 2 sea bass fillets, about 6 oz. each
  • 1 ½ tbsp. sea salt
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 4 tbsp. olive oil, separated
  • 3 cups water
  • 1-cup milk
  • ¾ cups quick-cooking polenta
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 red onion, julienned
  • 4 small scallions, halved lengthwise
  • 3.5 oz. cream cheese
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 lemon, peeled and cut in wedges


  1. For the brine, mix 2 cups of water with sea salt and sugar.

  3. For the polenta: in a medium saucepan, heat the water and the milk until boiling. Slowly stir in the polenta using a wooden spoon (to avoid lumps). Cook for 60 seconds and remove from heat.

  5. Remove the fish from the fridge, and discard the brine. Rinse in cool water and pat dry with paper towels.

  7. Mix the red onion with the scallions and the lemon wedges, tossing with 2 tbsps. of olive oil.
  8. Serve each fillet over a bed of polenta, topped with the scallions and lemon dressing. Season with freshly ground pepper.
