A few days ago I had bought some Sea Bass at the market with no clue as to what I would be making with it. Searching the internet for some inspiration I found this super easy and great looking recipe for sea bass curry. First problem was that I usually buy my fish whole, because I mostly just put it in the oven, with some spices, lemon, tomatoes, onions and white wine, this ALWAYS turns out well. That night however I was in the mood to experiment a bit. The problem though was that I had whole fish, but needed fillets. I am aware that I have a food blog and so this shouldn’t be a problem. But in the 2 years that I have been blogging I never learned to properly fillet a fish. Now I did my best and it came out pretty well, I decided that I am going to have to ask the chef at work to teach me to fillet some fish.
All of that is besides the point though, just make sure you either know how to fillet fish, or make your life simple and get fish fillets. The rest of this dish is super straight forward and easy to make so enjoy!
