Arash Hashemi’s Chilean Sea Bass

Arash Hashemi’s Chilean Sea Bass

We adapted Arash’s original recipe for keto Chilean Sea Bass to the microwave. (With Anyday, anything is possible!) Buttery sea bass filets are coated with a simple sauce of soy sauce, garlic chili sauce and rice vinegar and gently cooked to perfection in the microwave. The lid keeps the sauce from evaporating so you’re left with extra flavor goodness.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.


Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

  • 2 (4-6 oz) chilean sea bass filets, skin on
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon garlic chili sauce
  • 1 ½ teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds


  1. Add the soy sauce, garlic chili sauce and rice vinegar to the Anyday dish and mix to combine. 
  2. Pat dry the fish on both sides and season with salt, then place the filets skin side down in the Anyday dish. Spoon sauce over the fish, then cover with the lid (knob lifted). Cook in the microwave for 5-6 minutes or until the fish is fully cooked. (Thinner fillets will take less time and thicker fillets may take longer.) 
  3. Top with sesame seeds and enjoy.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • If desired, pat dry and sear the skin on a heated pan with a little bit of oil first. 
  • Try this same method with a different fish such as salmon, halibut, mahi mahi or cod.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
