Sea bass with orange relish
This White Sea Bass, not to be confused with Chilean sea bass, is the most sustainable choice in the U.S.
I love to go fishing and sea bass is always a great catch! For some reason the fish always taste best when I catch it myself. It is especially delish when you are bringing in the biggest catch of the day 🙂 This fresh and healthy meal will be ready to eat in less than 30 minutes! Give it a go and let me know what you think!
4 Sea bass fillet (6oz)
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp fresh orange juice
1 tsp grated orange grind
1 tsp kosher salt
3 tbsp evoo
1 fennel bulb
1 orange peeled and separated sections
½ cup thinly sliced red onion
1 tsp butter
Combine salt, evoo, lemon and orange juice,onion, and orange rind in a bowl and stir with whisk.
Remove fronds from fennel bulb and chop fronds to get 2 tablespoons. Cut the bulb in half and remove core. Thinly slice the fennel.
Add the orange sections and sliced fennel in the juice mixture. Toss gently to coat them.
Heat large skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle fish with kosher salt and ground black pepper to your preferred amount.
Add butter to the pan and wait for it to melt. Put fish in the pan and let cook for 4 minutes on each side.
Plate the fish and serve with the orange relish. Enjoy!

Glad to see not only this recipe but also your mention of the more sustainable variety. I love sea bass, but I seldom buy it because I am not sure of its origin. Thanks again for addressing this! 🙂
