IntroductionSkip To The Recipe

Steamed sea bass with spinach. After all the meat we have been eating lately, we were in the mood for some change.  Of course fish came to mind and we had some beautiful sea bass fillets that we just purchased from Pete.  I try to have a good variation of fish under hand, as a result my family has no opportunity to veto because I can give them choices. Yes, I am pretty well aware that it is sneaky… but what can I say… it works.

We also had some spinach and I somehow I wanted to incorporate the two. Not to mention that  I wanted to introduce spinach to my son other than in eating them in homemade raviolis.

The recipe below was very easy to put together, and the final cream was, in my opinion, the perfect addition to the plate.  I wish we had more of it, and yes, my little boy ate the spinach. Mom very happy…  We had couscous with it.

To all, have a wonderful week end.
