• 1 whole sea bass (may substitute with trout, red snapper, or catfish) 2 pounds fish
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup Sultan brand Olive Oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup Ziyad Brand Tahini
  • ½ cup Ziyad Brand Chinese Pine Nuts
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • salt and pepper to taste


Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°. Rinse inside and outside of fish well. Pat dry with paper towels. Place a large slice in the belly of the fish, and season inside and outside of fish with salt and pepper.

Step 2

While fish is resting, combine garlic, ½ c of lemon juice, olive oil, and most of the cilantro. Once combined, rub the inside and the outside of the fish. Place fish on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cover tightly with foil so steam doesn’t escape. Bake for 30 minutes.

Step 3

Mix tahini and remaining ½ c lemon juice until creamy. If it is too thick, add water until creamy. Heat butter in pan and add pine nuts. Cook until toasted and nuts become fragrant.

Step 4

After 30 minutes, uncover fish, and bake an additional 7-8 minutes until golden brown. Pour tahini sauce over fish and garnish with toasted pine nuts.
