Chilean Sea Bass with Brown Butter Sage



Wooohoo! Wooohoo! Wooohoo! Is the sound blaring from my speakers. The song is Adventure of a Lifetime by Coldplay. It’s one of those songs that just make you feel so good! Especially the part he sings “You Make Me Feel Like I’m Alive Again!” I love this song I’m reminded of that beautiful spring day we drove down the freeway with the top down on my car and we were both just smiling having no idea where we were going only that we knew we felt good.

So as I listen to this song sipping on my coffee, I was thinking of a dish I could make that would remind me of that special day….. Hmmm Chilean Sea Bass in brown butter sounds Fantastic! Now the dish sounds luscious, Sinful and unfriendly to the waistline and usually it is but,… We are going to make it waistline friendly 🙂 So here is your list to recreate the dish that reminds me of that day.

What You Will Need:

4 Filets Chilean Sea Bass (Please by the fish fresh from your local market)

2 Large Yellow Squash, peeled

2 Large Zucchini, peeled

6 Cloves Garlic, sliced thin

2 Lemons, juiced

4 Tbsp Butter

1 Small bunch of Sage

Salt, and Pepper

Prep Your Mis en Place 🙂


Pre heat your oven to 450.

Thinly peel your zucchini, and squash.


Like this. Add to a pan on the stove set to medium high heat.


Cook for 5 minutes then set aside.

On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, add the filets and sprinkle with salt, and pepper.


Once the oven is preheated, place the fish in the oven and bake for 8 minutes.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO TIME YOUR FISH! You don’t want to over cook the poor thing.

While the fish is baking, in a pan on the stove set to medium high heat, add the garlic and butter.


Once the butter melts and starts to brown, add in the sage and the juice of two lemons.


The butter will start to brown along with the garlic just in time.

Ding! Your fish is now done and so is your sauce.

Place the squash and zucchini on your plate, lay the fish down and top with your pretty little sauce.

I can’t tell you how easy this dish is to make! Most of the time people are afraid to cook fish on their own because they are easy to over cook. Trust me, don’t be!

  1. I have always wanted to try Sea Bass. This dish sound delicious.

    You look so stunning. Pink is a really good color on you.


  2. Looks like another wonderful dish. Quick question, can you substitute ghee for butter? This would enhance the nutritional value, but I do not know if it would affect the flavor?
