    It's a wonderful fatty fish, and a simple prep works well. Hopefully you have a fairly thick piece. Grill medium hot (like 450...or higher if it's thinner) until it releases itself from the grill and you can carefully flip. 4 or 5 minutes a side (or until browned). Remove at 120-130 internal, and it should be perfect after a short rest.

    The picture is halibut, but they cook similarly. The sauce is sauteed shallots, reduced tequila, heavy cream, a touch of lime juice and brined green peppercorns. I seasoned the fish with raging river before grilling.

    Good luck whatever you do!

    mad max has a something that i have heard nothing but good things about here is his write up



    Sea Bass, Hong Kong

    A little background . . a couple of weeks ago i was at a restaurant and had something called hong kong sea bass. ..menu said: sea bass steamed on bed of lettuce with ginger and scallions and served with broth of sherry and soy sauce. ..frankly it was the best fish i'd eaten in a restaurant in many years ....new i had to duplicate it in the egg. ... so. .. i bought a traditional oriental bamboo steamer (two level with lid). .. .ran some water all over it so it wouldn't get burned in the egg. .. set up my large egg with my wok ring and center fire, about 350 degrees dome temp. ..laid a big bed of fresh baby spinich and a couple of filets of sea bass on each of the steamer trays along with some slivers of fresh ginger and scallions. . .poured about 1 cup of sherry and about 1/3 cup of soy sauce into the cold wok and then set the steamer basket set in the wok over the liquid. ...set the whole thing in the wok ring and closed the dome for about 15 minutes ... . pulled the entire wok set up out after about 15 minutes, careful not to lose the broth in the wok. .. .plated the fish on top of the wilted spinach (oh, btw, use lots of spinach, it really shrinks down). ..and the spooned some of the broth on top ... my wife LOVED it .. .we agreed it may be the best fish i've ever made and ranks right up with some of the best egg food i've ever made. .. .

  • When you say "reduced tequila" you mean the contents of the bottle were reduced before you started cooking, right? I enjoy reducing the contents of tequila bottles too. ;)

  • Thanks for all the help and feedback.
  • You can't eat that - it's too pretty

    I'm not a tequilla drinker myself Ben, but I know a few people on the forum that would take a " tequilla reduction" that way.

    Thanks. You ate some of that fish.

    On the way to The Netherlands later this week!

    Hey Pete. Yeah, sometimes I do say that. More often, though, I just simply act it out.

    Hope all is well.

    Thanks Barry.
    Hatch (Kenny) made the sauce while I cooked the fish. I tried what he told me later at home, and it was not as good....but I did not have the wet green peppercorns (and maybe lacking in skill somewhat). Hatch makes a nice cream sauce! Dang that stuff was good.
    Beers to you.

    Hey Terry. Just wanted to say "hey", and I hope things are going well after all ya been thru.

    Max's recipe sounds good as well, with a totally different (but successful) approach.

    Cheers bro.

    Would you mind elaborating a little? That's a really good looking cook.

    Shhhh that was supposed to be a secret!!!

    It was pretty simple. Not sure what I missed, but I'll try from a different angle.

    I had a nice thick piece of fish to work with. I seasoned it liberally with raging river, and got the egg screaming hot.

    Meanwhile, Hatch was inside. And since he's not here, I'll try my best. He sauteed the finely diced shallots, added tequila and cooked it down. Think he said he used a half cup. Think he said is was Cuervo 1800. Not the $100 bottles we drink occasionally, and not the cheap cuervo gold. Anyways....once it's reduced to just enough liquid to keep the shallots wet, add the cream (and I guess at that time he added the brined green peppercorns) and stir continuously until it thickened. Season to taste with salt, white pepper and a light squirt of lime juice.

    Meanwhile, I threw the fish on directly over the hot coals. After a couple minutes I tugged on it and it stuck, so I let it go some more. Then it released from sticking and I flipped it. Went another couple minutes and pulled it and plated it to rest. Checked internal and it was 120.

    Hatch walked out with the sauce. We poured it on, and the feast was on.

    At least thats to the best I can recollect ;-)
    Beers to you.
