Sea bass wrapped in bacon baked.
Fish is always an easy meal to prepare and tonight was no exception. This recipe is an adaptation from a Jamie Oliver recipe. Light and with a nice flavor. Do not use too much of the fresh herbs as they can be overpowering the fish. Sautéed zucchini and carrots are an easy complimentary to the fish.
Tonight’s October 14, 2010 dinner

BAKED SEA BASS WRAPPED IN BACON
