If you’re after fast food, it doesn't get much quicker than pan-frying a couple of sea bass fillets. Sea bass is a great source of protein, low in fat and provides a valuable source of iodine, which contributes to normal cognitive function. 

How to cook sea bass

Pan-fried seabass


Pan-frying fish fillets is quick and easy. Heat a little olive oil and butter in a pan and add fillets. Cook the fillets for 2-3 minutes on each side and a whole fish for 8 to 10 minutes on each side.

Grilled sea bass


Cook fillets under a preheated medium grill for 2-3 minutes, turning once and brushing with olive oil occasionally. For a whole sea bass - place under a preheated medium grill for 8-10 minutes on each side.

Roasted sea bass


Whole sea bass takes well to being roasted in the oven and finished off on the barbecue. To roast a whole sea bass wrap it in foil or greaseproof paper with herbs and seasonings. Cook in a preheated oven at 200°C, gas mark 6, for 30-40 minutes.


Product recommendations

Fresh fish freezes really well. Pack it in freezer bags or suitable containers and freeze for up to 3 months. Be sure to defrost fish thoroughly before cooking.
