Easy and Flavorful Baked Herbed Sea Bass is a way to eat fresh and delicious fish easily. We often hear that we must have a well-balanced diet that includes an excellent source of protein, selenium and essential omega-3 fatty acids. Fish is an important part of healthy eating. Fish, in general, are low in calories and high in protein.
Sea Bass is a generic name used for much different fish from various species and most are not even Bass per chefs-resources.com. If you wish to learn more about the different types of bass, check out their website in the reference section.
Sea Bass, in general, is very easy to cook. Baked, grilled, roasted or in sauce, it absorbs the flavors of fresh herbs and spices very well. It is not a smelly fish and is also easy to clean.
When cooking whole fish, I usually clean it with lemon or lime. Depending on size and cut of the fish I will either prepare a water, lemon or lime bath to soak the fish for a few minutes. This way, when ready, the fishy odor is less, and there’s no embarrassment.
Yesterday I posted an article called “How to add more flavor to your favorite fish recipe.” The featured photo was a sea bass marinating in several herbs and spices. This post is the recipe post for my wonderful way of making most fish flavorful.
Adding different herbs and spices is a great way to enjoy fresh fish. In this recipe, the herbs and spices are in abundance. Parsley, garlic, bay leaves, and oregano are just a few herbs and spices to give a pleasing aroma to the sea bass.
When trying out this recipe, I would recommend creating a lemon or lime bath after cleaning your fish. Trusting your monger to clean the fish entirely is not good to do. Your fish monger has tons of fish to clean, and it is very easy to leave a few scales. That also goes for fillets and fish steaks.
Another great tip is to remove all excess water after cleaning your fish. Towel paper is the best at removing the excess water. Once done, your fish is ready to be marinated and cook.
Always remember to buy fresh. Make sure you choose your fish carefully. You can opt to make the same recipe with another type of fish. But always make sure that the fish is fresh and firm. Lastly, Sea bass is a healthy food choice because it contains a considerable amount of vitamins and minerals.
Enjoy my Easy and Flavorful Baked Herbed Sea Bass! And remember that this recipe can be prepared with any other firm, white flesh fish.
