  • 2 medium size Sea bass about 5 – 6 pounds
  • 1 lemon or lime + 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 – 8 large sprigs fresh parsley

  • Clean the fish by removing scales and fins, etc…. leave the heads on. Prepare a lemon/lime bath. Fill up with water a bowl that is large enough to hold both Sea Bass. Squeeze the juice of one lemon or lime in the water and place both fish in the bath. Let soak for about 5- 7 minutes. Remove, rinse in cold water, pat dry and set aside.
  • In a baking dish, add 1 tablespoon olive oil and spread half of the herbs and spices inside the dish.

  • Place the fish on top of the herbs and spices and cover with remaining herbs and spices. Drizzle one tablespoon over sea bass. Season the cavities with salt if preferred. (my preference is without salt because we follow a low to no sodium diet)
