Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Oven-Baked Sea Bass


The farm-share delivery service that I subscribe to has recently joined up with a community supported fishery, so now not only can I pick up produce each week, I can also bring home fresh-from-the-Pacific fish. 



This past weekend was the first time I had ordered fish through the CSF.  Much like the produce box, I didn't know ahead of time what kind of seafood I would receive.  When John picked up the produce box, he came home with sea bass, too.

I had never cooked sea bass before, so I searched online for a recipe.  I followed this recipe.  When I make it again, I will use the following revisions:

Oven-Baked Sea Bass

1 pound sea bass steak
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
fresh basil--I used 1 or 2 tablespoons

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Put fish in a glass baking dish.  Pour vinegar over fish.  In a small bowl, mix garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper, then rub fish with the mixture.  Bake for 15 minutes.  Sprinkle with basil and bake an additional 5 minutes.  


Do you have a favorite fish recipe?

  1. I love fresh fish, but my options are quite limited since I live inland. I am eager to try your recipe on some frozen fish.

  2. You are so lucky -- we subscribe to a CSA box but seafood is not an option. But who knows, maybe that will change. I love sea bass and have always just topped it with a heavy dose of lemon pepper, butter and sliced lemons but I will definitely try it your way! Enjoy.

  5. Sea Bass is one of my favorites. When I was growing up in San Diego, my parents had a friend who frequently went sport fishing and would share what he caught with us. Lucky you!!!

  6. That looks SO delicious! I'll have to pin this recipe, always looking for yummy fish recipes. I usually make a pesto of olive oil, garlic, ginger, pinch of soy sauce and basil, cilantro and whatever other herbs I have on hand. I top with salt, pepper and sprinkle with Old Bay seafood seasoning, which is heavy paprika.

It's #RootsTech Giveaway Time!

In February of 2018, not knowing exactly what to expect, I attended RootsTech for the first time. What I learned is that RootsTech has something for everyone, from the most beginner of beginners to professional DNA genealogists. If you are interested in your own family story, come to RootsTech! RootsTech offers over 300 classes, amazing keynote speakers, an Expo Hall packed with all sorts of vendors, and evening cultural events. 

After an enjoyable experience in 2018, I returned in 2019, and even got my husband, John, to come one of the days to hear Saroo Brierley give a keynote address. 

Speaking of keynote addresses, this week RootsTech just announced that one of the speakers for 2020 will be David Hume Kennerly, a Pulitzer Prize winning photographer. I can't wait to hear his story!

RootsTech 2020 will celebrate its 10th anniversary, and is bound to be the best one yet! I have been delighted to be accepted as an official RootsTech ambassador. One of the perks is that I received a c…

Ten Things of Thankful: Dad's Influence Edition

Here in the United States, it is Father's Day weekend. I did not realize until recently that Father's Day was not officially made a holiday until 1972. 1972! Now, while I realize that many people consider 1972 eons ago, I do not. I'm glad that fathers have a day of recognition now, because they surely deserve acknowledgement. 
I thought for this week's Ten Things of Thankful post, I would list ten lessons I'm thankful my dad taught me.
My dad is a teacher. Not only did he impart his knowledge to countless junior high aged kids throughout his career, he taught--and still teaches--my siblings and me. He is not a preachy teacher; he's a humble man whose lessons I feel like I learned through osmosis.
When he would get home from work, we'd all sit down as a family for supper. Often, our phone would ring, and on the other end of the line would be a parent of one of my dad's students. 
Hello, Mrs. _______. How can I help you? . . . (an irate woman's voice is h…

Ten Things of Thankful: Summer Strawberries and Procrastinated Projects

You would think that by the time a person reaches my age, she would not be surprised by the passing of time, yet I find myself nearly constantly amazed that a certain amount of time has passed--whether that be a week, month, year, or couple of decades.
Earlier this year, I planted a garden. Yesterday I harvested my first strawberry. Earlier this year, I also planted fuchsia starts, and now the flowers are blooming. How is that possible? (And why am I surprised?)
Sometime around the turn of the century (and it still seems strange to use that phrase about the year 2000), we bought a circa 1935 dresser. It needed some TLC, but had a cool curvy front. This past week, I finally got around to applying some Restor-A-Finish and Feed-N-Wax, and now the dresser still looks old, but not dilapidated. I still need to apply some hide glue to some loose pieces, but I'm counting progress as a win.
For as long as I can remember, I've been a saver of papers. It some respects, this is good. I'v…
