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?
Thanks for fresh fish.
