How to prepare Baked sea bass
To prepare baked sea bass, start by cleaning the vegetables. Coarsely chop up the onion, the carrots and celery sticks 1, then cut the tomatoes in half and finely chop the parsley 2. Place the vegetables in a baking tray, grease and add salt and pepper to taste 3.
Bake the vegetables in a static oven preheated to 350°F for around 10 minutes 4. Clean the sea bass in the meantime. After skinning and gutting the fish, by running the blade of the knife down towards the head 5, remove all the fins: back, side and ventral ones 6.
Place a pinch of salt and a bay leaf in the middle 7, then arrange the sea bass on an oven tray, grease the surface of the fish and bake for 15 minutes in the oven 9. Once ready, flavor with a few basil leaves and your baked sea bass is ready to be served 9.
How to store
Once the baked sea bass is ready, it is best enjoyed right away, although you can store it in the refrigerator for no longer than a day.
Freezing is not recommended once cooked.
You can prepare this dish using frozen sea bass, just leave it to defrost for at least 8-12 hours in the refrigerator.
Once baked, when you arrange the fish on a serving dish, douse it in the sauce left over after baking, or collect the bottom and blend it in a mixer or puree maker, to make a creamy and homogeneous sauce.
