Fresh fishRoasted sea bass on a bed of fennel with a dried tomato sauce

Ingredients for two persons:
  • 600g whole sea bass
  • 120g dried tomatoes
  • 350g fennel
  • a pinch of salt and pepper
  • 10ml olive oil
  • 5ml balsamic vinegar
  • 1 sprig of fresh rosemary or 1 g dried rosemary
  • 30g butter
 
Recipe:
Clean the sea bass and dry it with a paper towel in order to prevent sticking and cracking of skin. Roast the fish on a well heated pan with oil and coarse salt. Roast the sea bass on both sides. When turning the fish, brush the side that is not on the grill with a little olive oil so the fish does not dry out. For chips, grate the fennel and let it dry out in the oven for about 5 minute at 200°C until it starts turning a little brown, making sure it does not burn. For the dried tomato sauce, combine chopped dried tomatoes with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Put the roasted sea bass on a bed of fennel and drizzle the dried tomato sauce over it.
 
Note:
Pay attention to the saltiness of the dried tomatoes so the dish is not too salty in the end. If you want the fish to be more aromatic, put a sprig of fresh seasoning herb and lightly crushed garlic clove into the inside of the fish during roasting. You can serve mildly refreshing dry red wine with the fish.
