Sea Bass with Crunchy Skin

Chilean Sea Bass

This fish will melt in your mouth!  Sea bass meat is more oily, rich in fat, and has large flaky pieces.  It is a white fish and you can cook it several different ways.  This recipe is simple for a reason, you do not want to lose the natural goodness and flavors.  I baked mine in the oven but you could always grill it too!  If you grill it I would leave the skin on to help hold the meat together.  If you bake it follow the recipe directions.  The skin is super nutritious and adds an awesome crunch texture.  Watch out for little bones in the fish when you are eating.

In-Season Veggies

For this month (July) I choose to add sweet onion and leek to this dish!  It compliments the fish very well and as I said early, allow the fish be the main flavor not the vegetable.  If you make this during the winter/spring I would suggest a diced  onion and shaved brussel sprout combo.

Tie It All Together

It will taste phenomenal without any sauce or dressing; however, the Three Ingredient Miso Sauce really pulls this dish all together.  The fish is more of a fatty fish, as mentioned, so there’s little to no risk of a dry meal.  The miso sauce is a thick creamy texture that will give it an Asian-flare!
