I can, without a doubt, say that this black sea bass is easily the prettiest fish I’ve ever laid eyes on. And I am not one to exaggerate.
Well, I mean, when it’s important. And this is important!
And in all honesty, I didn’t even know fresh seafood delivery was a thing. But it is!
AND IT IS WONDERFUL YOU GUYS!
Are you familiar with the iconic Fulton Fish Market in NYC? This local Bronx establishment has been providing restaurants and seafood-lovers galore with the freshest fish around for nearly 200 years. YES, I said TWO HUNDRED YEARS. It blows my mind.
You know what else blows my mind? Anywhere between one to two million pounds of fresh seafood cross their docks on a nightly basis during the week. I can’t even imagine that. And they specialize in fish from fresh, sustainable, and legal sources in US fishing waters. How cool is that?
Do you see this beautimas black sea bass? This was delivered to my door. Fresh. From the Fulton Fish Market itself. They deliver! Through their new platform fultonfishmarket.com you can get the day’s freshest catch delivered to your doorstep and I cannot stop raving about it.
My husband and I made an absolutely amazing spicy salt and lime black sea bass with mango and black bean salad and it was literally the best sea bass my husband, as well as my dad, have ever had.
I wish I could take full credit for that, but clearly, a great fish is the biggest component to an amazing dish.
If you have as many seafood-loving friends as we do, you’ll be happy to hear that Fulton Fish Market has a CSF (Community Supported Fishery) program!

Now, when it comes to this spicy salt and lime black sea bass, I personally used Mille Sel De Guerande Spicy Salt, which has an incredible flavor profile. You can also find it here!
For the Marinade
- ¼ C Fresh Lime Juice
- 3 Tbsp Mille Sel De Guerande Spicy Salt
- 2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 6 Black Sea Bass Filets 4 oz each
For the Mango and Black Bean Salad
- 1 Large Mango diced
- 1 Red Bell Pepper seeded and diced
- 1 15 oz Can Black Beans drained and rinsed
- ½ Green Onions diced
- In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, spicy salt, and olive oil. Place the sea bass filets in a large bowl and coat with half of the marinade. Let sit covered in the fridge for 15 minutes.
- While the fish marinates, combine the mango, bell pepper, black beans, and green onion in a large bowl. Toss with remaining marinade and set aside.
- Heat a large skillet to medium high. Add a couple tablespoons of olive oil, then add the sea bass filets and cook for 6 minutes, flipping the filets halfway through. Serve immediately with a heart portion of the mango and black bean salad.
