Whole Roasted Sea Bass

Whole Roasted Sea Bass

Now the main course was going to have to be Fish. Since the trainer’s diet pretty much consists of only eating fish. When I was buying Monk fish earlier in the week, I started talking to a women who was buying whole Sea Bass for a dinner and she sold me on its simplicity. In terms of a main dish, this could not have been any simpler as a main dish.

Preheat Oven 375

My fish was 1.2 Kilograms.

In a large baking dish, I place 3 fresh springs of Rosemary, 1 and 1/2 Lemons Slices, 1 Cup of mini plum tomatoes cut in half, 2 teaspoons of fresh thyme, 5 garlic cloves sliced,  1 red onion slices, and 1 Cup of white Wine. Cut about 3-4 slices on one side of the fish and place on top of all the seasonings. Drizzle with a handsome amount of Olive Oil and salt and pepper. Bake for 20 minutes and done!

Steamed Sea Bass in Parchment Paper

Neil and I have been trying to introduce more fish into our weekly diet. It also helps that I am currently working on “Project Muffin Top” trying to loose the weight I put on when moving to London- a city that loves its drinks and fried food!
Cooking fish I think of as a new adventure. It is not something I cook often nor serve to guests unless I know their food likes and dislikes. We had this sea bass last night, loved it soo much that I went and bought another piece for dinner tonight which I will try with some different seasonings. Eating solo tonight and this is great to make for one person or a group of people. The presentation is fun for entertaining can be prepared in advance and virtually no clean up!
