Clean Eating Fish Challenge: Sea Bass

 Another mild, firm, white fish - sea bass is an excellent choice for Clean Eaters. Sea Bass is ( generally ) affordable, and is readily available all year round and nation wide. It readily accepts most ingredients you pair it with, and is easily cooked by even novice chefs. This dish has the sweet tang of the mango playing well with black beans ( I love black beans... ) to make a sweet/savory salsa. 

 Roasted Sea Bass With Mango and Black Bean Salsa

1 pound sea bass (or other white fish)
1 teaspoon oil
salt and pepper to taste

1. Lightly oil you broiler pan to prevent the fish from sticking.
2. Season the sea bass with the salt and pepper.
3. Bake the sea bass in a preheated 450F oven until cooked (no longer opaque), about 10-15 minutes depending on how thick the sea bass is.

Mango and Black Bean Salsa

4 small mangos (peeled, stoned and cut into bite sized pieces)
1 can black beans (rinsed and drained)
2 jalapeƱo peppers (chopped)
2 green onions (chopped)
1 handful cilantro (chopped)
1 teaspoon cumin
1 lime (juice)
