  • 1 cup diced watermelon seedless preferred
  • ½ cup diced mango
  • ¼ cup diced red onion
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon lime zest
  • ¼ cup cilantro leaves chopped
  • 2 6 oz sea bass filets
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat the grill. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.  Make sure your grill is clean and well seasoned.  
  • Make the salsa. In a small bowl mix the watermelon, mango, onion, lime juice, salt, and zest.  Stir in the cilantro and refrigerate for 15 - 20 minutes while the fish cooks.  
  • Prepare the fish. Pat the sea bass fillets dry and brush or spray them with olive oil.  Season with salt and pepper.  
  • Grill the fish. Place fish on the grill, skin side down, diagonally across the grates.  Close the lid and turn the grill down to medium.  Let the fish cook for 3-4 minutes.  Using two spatulas (or a spatula and a fork) carefully lift the fish and make sure the skin is crispy.  The fish should lift from the grill easily.  If it's still sticking a bit, let it cook for an additional 30 seconds.  Carefully flip the fish over, again placing on a diagonal across the grates.  Let cook for 4 - 7 minutes more, until the temperature reads 140°F on an instant-read thermometer.  Once the fish reaches the desired temperature, remove it from the grill.  
  • Serve. Top with the watermelon mango salsa and serve immediately.
