amazing sea bass recipe

we don't prepare fish often, but when we do, we do it with a TON of flavor

so i give you

it's not a highly detailed recipe, but it's easy enough to follow and customize.  
i love to just throw things together and this is one of those recipes.  

Amazing Sea Bass (serves 2)

1 pound sea bass
1 bunch of parsley
1 bulb of garlic
a handful of gourmet olives
another handful of grape tomatoes
1 lemon
1 bunch green onion
olive oil

preheat oven to 450*
create a bed for the fish out of lemon and green onion

grab some flat leaf parsley, lemon and garlic.. i use lots of garlic

some gourmet olives.  you can use kalamata or just plain green
i use.. you guessed it.. garlic stuffed

and some grape tomatoes

i cut my grape tomatoes like this.  hold a bunch with a lid and slice horizontally

just chop and slice until you get a nice little relish
squeeze a half a lemon in there, drizzle 2tbsp of olive oil, and add a little pepper

now get your sea bass.  so gorgeous, right?

this is exactly one pound.  this sucker is expensive... but worth every penny

slice him in half and nestle the pieces into place

then dump all that amazingness on top.  drizzle more lemon or olive oil if you want.  
i'll add white wine if it's open   ::cheer::

wrap it up and bake at 450* for at least 25 minutes
it will be done when the fish is opaque and flakey

and voila!
serve with rice and veggies, and hearty toasted bread for mopping the plate
(you will miss half the meal if you don't pour all those juices on top)

a friend made this a looong time ago for a dinner party.  she added other things that weren't exactly meshing with my palate. so i changed it for me and my family.  i think you could top this fish with just about anything and get a great result :)

since i made this for Thomas' birthday, i ended the night with 

from our family to yours, enjoy :)
