Seven Days of Sea Bass
Last week, we ate sea bass ... lots of sea bass!
For some reason, I wound up with a freezer full of sea bass. When the going is good, get going! Get a glut ... then, in times of lean, you have a stash.
We could have spread it out longer, but my Mrs jokingly challenged me to make a different meal each day ... joking, or not ... challenge accepted.
Here was my plan:
Roasted sea bass with roasted sweet potato, orange segments, steamed courgette and sauce vierge.
Grilled sea bass with set celeriac purée with a garlic mushroom jus.
Steamed sea bass over citrus dressed broccoli with capers and anchovies.
Almond crust roasted sea bass with parsnip purée, fried kale and a saffron sauce.
Steamed sea bass with spicy green lentils and white rice. Tacu Tacu.
Poached sea bass pieces with prawns, sea vegetables, asparagus, ginger, chilli and lime. Hot & Sour.
Pan fried sea bass over garden peas with a pea & mint purée, scallops and fish velouté.
... sound fun?
... a bit "off trail".
We went to the Ballet* instead, but I would have cooked a hot and sour soup: sea bass with ginger, chilli, garlic, sea vegetables, lemongrass, lime ... that kind of thing.
