The ingredients in this recipe are inspired by the Provence region in southeastern France. Keep it simple and enjoy. (Suitable substitutes for the sea bass: Red snapper, striped bass.)
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh basil
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh thyme
- 2 teaspoons dried lavender
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

To make the paste:
In a small bowl whisk together the paste ingredients. Spread the paste evenly on both sides of the fish fillets. Grill over Direct High heat until the flesh is opaque throughout and starting to flake, 5 to 7 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling time.
