Sea bass is a white flaky fish that is painless to cook, a little marinate some hot heat and voila its finished. Sea Bass has a mild, delicate flavor that goes well with almost any vegetable. It has a flavor and texture similar to Cod. You can actually substitute Cod in this recipe as well as Halibut.
Choose the type of white fish you use in this recipe based on what is available in your area and make sure that you purchase your fish from a store that only offers wild caught seafood that is certified sustainable by the Marine Stewardship council. I typically buy mine from Whole Foods.
With a side of some tender asparagus spears and marinated mushrooms you have the complete meal in one dish that goes from oven to table. Literally you only use one dish, which means… yep you got it, less dishes to wash.
