Blackened sea bass on the grill. Incredible! I will definitely have this again.


  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves, crushed
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 (4 ounce) fillets skinless sea bass
  • 2 medium lemons, halved
  • 4 sprigs fresh dill, or as desired


Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

Pour melted butter onto a plate. Mix paprika, garlic salt, thyme, black pepper, and cayenne together in a small bowl until well combined.

Dip each sea bass fillet into the melted butter, evenly coating both sides. Sprinkle both sides with seasoning mixture.

Grill, covered, for 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until fillets are blackened and flaky, 3 to 4 more minutes.

Serve with lemon halves and dill sprigs.
