Chilean Sea Bass with Spice Rub, Corn Risotto, and Avocado Salad
Serves 4 to 6

Ingredients

Spice rub

  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Corn Risotto

  • 2 tablespoons organic extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon roasted cumin, powdered
  • 1 medium shallot, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 ears of corn, off the cob
  • 1 cup Arborio rice
  • 3 to 4 cups chicken broth, warmed
  • Salt
  • 1/3 half and half
  • ½ cup queso fresco (or mild feta cheese), grated

Salad

  • 1 large Hass avocado, cut into ½ inch pieces
  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • Juice of half a lime
  • Salt
  • ½ cup cilantro, chopped
Directions

Salad directions

Mix salad ingredients in a bowl, and set aside.

Fish and rub directions

  • Mix the spices in a small bowl. Rub the fish filets all over with the spice rub. Marinate for 2 to 3 hours in the fridge.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Place the fish filets on a lined cookie sheet. Drizzle oil and sprinkle salt on each of the filets. Bake for 9 to 12 minutes, depending on the size of the filets.

Risotto directions

  • Heat a wide frying pan with the olive oil. Add the cumin and sauté for a minute on medium heat.
  • Add the shallot and garlic. Saute for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the corn and the rice. Saute for 3 to 4 minutes on medium low heat.
  • Gradually add the broth one ladle at a time, stirring the rice in between. Add the liquid as it cooks out. The risotto should take about 20 minutes to cook.
  • Add the half and half and cheese. Mix well and check for seasonings. Add salt.
  • Serve with avocado salad on top and fish on the side.
