A Heart-Healthy Entrée Recipe
- ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
- 2 pounds sea bass or salmon
- ¼ cup dry white wine or juice of 1 lemon
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- Freshly ground pepper to taste
- 2 tsp. chopped parsley
- 2 tsp. chopped cilantro
- Lemon wedges and/or extra virgin olive oil for serving
Preheat the oven to 425° F. Rub a small amount of olive oil over the bottom of a roasting pan large enough to hold the fish in 1 layer. Rub the fish with a little more oil and place in the pan. Combine the remaining olive oil with the wine or lemon juice, garlic, pepper, and herbs. Drizzle the mixture over the fish, coating well.
Bake the fish for 15 to 20 minutes, basting frequently with the pan juices. Remove the fish from the oven and test for doneness; the flesh should be opaque all the way through to the bone, and flake easily. If the fish is not done, return it to the oven for 5 to 10 minutes more.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.
