Summer flavored red bass filets

I found a giant red bass to smoke and made a fantastic recipe. This is going to be the ultimate summer fish dish.

I made a great red bass dry rub and a limoncello dressing to go with it.

  • Red bass filets. Skin on.
  • Fleur de sell
  • 1 grapefruit

Red bass rub

  • 1 part raw can sugar
  • 1 part paprika powder
  • 1/8 part garlic powder
  • 1/8 part onion powder
  • 1/8 part ginger powder

For the dressing

  • 3 tbsp of olive oil
  • 2 tbsp of limoncello
  • juice of half a lime
  • 1 tbsp raw cane sugar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp ginger powder

How to

  1. Take the red bass filets and dry brine them with a light coating of fleur de sell while you prepare the grill to smoke on a temperature of 90°C (194F).
  2. Mix the dry rub and sprinkle it with an even layer on the meat side of the filets. Put the filets on the grill and close the lid.
  3. Take a cup and mix all the ingredients for the dressing.
  4. The red bass filets are ready when it starts to flake and the meat is no longer transparent. The filets are extremely tender so you have to take them off with an extra long spatula.
  5. Remove the plate setter and let the temperature in the grill rise.
  6. Slice the grapefruit and take off the peel. Grill them on both sides.
  7. Place the grilled grapefruit on the smoked red bass and sprinkle some of the dressing.
