this is not my own personal recipe, i added it for the zaar world tour game and now zaar reps refuse to remove it.
- 3⁄4 lb chilean sea bass fillet
- salt & fresh ground pepper, to taste
- 3 tablespoons tarragon, chopped
- 3 tablespoons dill
- 3 tablespoons flat leaf parsley
- 1 sprig fresh tarragon, for garnish
- 1 sprig fresh dill (to garnish)
- 1 sprig flat leaf parsley (to garnish)
- Cut the sea bass in half horizontally.
- Season the inside with salt and pepper and fill the center with the chopped herbs.
- Reassemble the sea bass and season the outside with salt and pepper to taste.
- Wrap in plastic wrap.
- Steam the sea bass in an 8-inch, flat-bottomed steamer, covered, for 6 minutes, or until it is barely opaque.
- To assemble: Remove the plastic wrap.
- Use a very sharp knife to cut the fish into eight 2-inch wedges.
- Choose a flat, colorful plate to set off the dramatic form of the fish.
- Stand one wedge on its end and show the herb filling of the other.
- Garnish with fresh herbs.
Very delicious! Didn't cut in half, since my fillets were only 1/2" thick, but I used the herbs with some minced garlic (as Ravenseyes suggested) and drizzle with some fresh lemon. YUM!
This is wonderful! I followed Ravenseye's advice and added very thinly sliced garlic and sliced lemon. Delicious. The aroma was just great when I open up the wrap. Since it was just for me I did a half recipe and then with the leftovers I am going to have that with a salad for lunch tomorrow. I think that will be really nice.
This was a prefectly wonderful dish that I added to our seafood buffet yesterday - the seasoning just about dead on - I added a little garlic and lemon butter on the side for those that wanted to crank it up a notch and it seemed that most did so I perhaps next time I would add a clove of mashed garlic to the herb mixture and throw in a few lemon slices - made for zingo 2008
