This summer dinner is perfect for a romantic date night for two or a larger dinner party. One serving of sea bass is low in calories and is a perfect way to get your protein and essential omega-3 fatty acids in for the day. Add your favorite sides, and you’ve got a meal your date or friends will be talking about for weeks. From THE CLEVER GUT DIET COOKBOOK, this is Sea Bass with Seaweed Salsa Verde.
Crisp, succulent, and full of flavors of the sea. A delicious way to boost your omega-3s and treat your microbiome to some seaweed.
1 tbsp olive or rapeseed oil
2 sea bass fillets
Salsa Verde with Seaweed
1. Place a frying pan over medium heat, add the oil, and cook the fillets skin side up for 4-5 minutes.
2. Turn the fillets over and drizzle with half the salsa verde. Cook for 3-4 minutes longer, until the fillets are no longer translucent. Transfer to a plate and pour over the rest of the salsa.
3. Serve with 3-4 small boiled potatoes (ideally reheated so they contain more resistant starch; add 40 calories) and Pea and Edamame Mash.
Tip: If using a whole fish, stuff some Seaweed Salsa Verde into the cavity for extra flavor.
Make sure to end the night with a delicious cocktail.
