Sea Bass With Spicy Roasted Bell Pepper Sauce

"This is a very versatile sauce. You can pair it with so many things. Use it as a sauce for pasta, as a dip, or as a topping for toasted garlic bread. I'm sure that you will find a use for it all your own. You can roast your own bell peppers, or you can purchase jars of them in the supermarket already roasted and peeled.It goes great with chicken or, of course, the sea bass!"

  1. This is a great sauce. Unfortunately, the sea bass that I used had a strange texture. I will continue to use this recipe, however, with other firm white fish, as well as bread, pasta and chicken. We had some leftover and I plan to use it for pasta next week. Yum! Thanks for sharing.


I would like to welcome you to my recipes. I have been with since 10/05. My beloved husband, Tom, passed away 3 years ago. My world stopped. It's taken me all this time to find my way back to life without him. I have been so blessed to have found my second, once in a lifetime. I've met an amazing man who is so good to me. We moved from Las Vegas, Nevada to Bullhead City, Az. in February, and we love it here. I have worked at Bally's and Paris hotel.casinos, in Las Vegas. I have seen some very famous entertainers, including Liza Minnelli, Penn and Teller, Ray Liotta, Dr. J (Julius Erving), Frank Sinatra and his wife Barbara Marx. and many, many more. Cooking is my passion, and I am slowly, but surely beginning to venture into the world of baking. To me, cooking is so much easier because baking is so much more exact. I love to make Italian and Mexican food the best, followed by Chinese and last, but by far the least, good old American food! How can you beat chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy?? I love to find several recipes and put my own spin on them and create a new recipe.
