      I used one large sea bass in this delicious recipe and it made a lovely Sunday lunch for us. The onion and celery didn't get soft enough in the baking time required to cook the fish - and I wasn't sure if they were to be eaten with the fish or discarded. (I had minced the celery quite fine rather than sliced, cause I wasn't sure exactly what 2-3 slices of celery would be - minced a whole rib). I do like the flavour they imparted to the fish and so, next time, I will sweat them (the onion and celery) for a bit in some butter to speed up the cooking process, and then stuff the fish. I loved the flavour given by the bacon, too. Couldn't be simpler and really delicious!
