Author Lacey Baier of A Sweet Pea Chef


  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt to coat the fish
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper to coat the fish
  • 2 4-6 oz sea bass fillets
  • 1/3 cup whole almonds raw or roasted
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp granulated garlic or powdered
  • 1/8 tsp powdered ginger
  • 1/4 cup spicy mustard
  • 1 tsp olive oil


  1. Add the almonds to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until completely processed. Add the almond crumbles to a medium-sized mixing bowl and add the paprika, granulated garlic and powdered ginger.
  2. Brush the fillets with the spicy mustard until fully coated. Lightly sprinkle the salt and pepper on all sides.
  3. Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a deep skillet.
  4. Coat the sea bass with the almond mixture until well-coated. The mustard will help the mixture stick to the fish.
  5. Cook the fish in the pan until golden brown on one side, about 6-8 minutes. Once browned, flip and cook opposite side for another 6-8 minutes. Check the fish to see if it is done by inserting a fork into the flesh and twisting. If it flakes, it's ready. If it is still squishy and not opaque, it's not yet ready so continue to cook, checking every 2 minutes for doneness.
