Easy to Make Curried Sea Bass with Blistered Tomatoes
This is how easy it is to make this simple sea bass recipe. It’s all done in one pan, and takes just a few ingredients. Full recipe below.
A small dab of butter is heated in a skillet, then a piece of sea bass, sprinkled with sea salt and curry is seared in the pan.
The sea bass is then flipped, halved grape or cherry tomatoes are added to the skillet, then moved to an oven to finish cooking.
The tomatoes and fish release juices which create a pan sauce. The sea bass is plated and the tomatoes and sauce are poured over the fish to serve.
