Grilled Yakitori Chilean Seabass

Brad Nichols


An inspired fusion of traditional Japanese BBQ Yakitori sauce with the buttery and succulent Sea Bass creates a wonderful and savory sweet taste explosion! I hope you like it!

For simplicity - the first 4 steps and 8 ingredients can be replaced by commercial Yakitori sauce/marinade available at your local Asian grocery saving time and effort!

How to Make Grilled Yakitori Chilean Seabass


  1. Combine first 6 ingredients to make a yakitori marinade. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
  2. While the marinade is heating, whisk together cornstarch and cold water.
  3. Once marinade comes to a full boil, whisk in the cornstarch mixture and simmer until sauce thickens.
  4. Let marinade cool.
  5. Add mixture to sea bass, toss to coat and marinade for 3 hours.
  6. Grill sea bass for 2 minutes on one side, rotating each piece 90 degrees after 1 minute to create a cross-hatch pattern (turning the fish over after only 2 minutes prevents the filets from falling apart ).
  7. Flip fish over and grill for an additional 12-15mins (depending on thickness) until flesh flakes easily, basting regularly with retained yakitori marinade
  8. Remove from grill and lightly sprinkle sesame seeds and scallions over the fish before serving
