This is one of  my favorite go to dishes when I am having a dinner party and I want to impress my guests.  It’s easy to make, light and packed with flavor. The cucumber salsa is a perfect pairing that adds a bit of a tang and a crunch. I like to use Sea Bass for this dish because of it’s sweet buttery taste and texture. It’s a bland fish so it will take on the flavors that you put in the recipe.

Salsa:

  • 2 organic cucumbers, peeled, seeded and chopped small
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons, seasoned rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 scallions, chopped small
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped small

Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ cup Mirin
  • 3 tablespoons Monk Fruit sweetener available at health food stores, and Amazon. Some super markets are starting to carry Monk fruit.
  • 2 tablespoons dry white wine

Fish:

  • 4 (3-ounce) pieces of sea bass fillets
  • ½ cup Bob’s Red Mill organic all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
