Sea Bass Recipes

Herb & Pesto Sea Bass recipe

This easy sea bass dish is full of flavour but requires very little effort, making it great for a midweek supper. Make your own pesto if you like, or just use some shop bought pesto.


  • 2 x 125g sea bass fillets, skinned and boned
  • 1 tbsp. chilli oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp. freshly chopped chervil
  • 125g pesto


  1. Make slashes in the sea bass fillets. Rub all over with the chilli oil, salt and pepper, and stuff the slashes with the chervil.

  2. Fry on a preheated griddle pan for 4-5 minutes on either side until flaking gently.

  3. Let the pesto down with a little water until the consistency is runny. Heat it gently in a small saucepan, then spoon over the cooked sea bass fillets.

Use red pesto if you like - choose one that has some chopped chilli in the recipe for extra flavour. Recipe serves 2.
