Fresh fishCrispy sea bass with a ginger and lime sauce

Ingredients for two persons:
  • 2 pieces of 350g sea bass
  • 200ml fish soup (stock)
  • 100g butter
  • 20g ginger
  • 2 limes
  • 5g cornstarch
  • a pinch of salt and pepper
 
Recipe:
Clean the sea bass from scales and entrails. Put the fish on a baking tray, season with salt and drizzle olive oil over it. Bake it for 30 minutes at 250°C. Baking time depends on the size of the fish. Meanwhile, bring to the boil the fish stock, grated ginger, finely chopped lime peel and lime juice. Cook for 10 minutes and add butter and combine with cornstarch you mixed with 3 spoons of water. Drizzle the ginger and lime sauce over the baked sea bass and serve with a side dish of your choice.
 
Note
If you are roasting the fish in a pan, be sure to dry it thoroughly, and put several pinches of coarse salt in the pan, on a little oil, to prevent the fish from sticking to the pan. In that cause, do not season the fish with additional salt. We recommend a semi-dry wine with a fruity bouquet with this meal.
