Sea Bass with Vegetable Sauce (P, TNT)
Source: Self
Serves: 1

1 piece fresh Sea Bass, about 4-5 oz.
1/2 plum tomato, diced
3 baby new potatoes (red/white or both), diced (small)
1 small carrot, diced
1 large button mushroom, diced
1/4 sweet red pepper, diced
1 tbsp. medium salsa, divided
a few leaves each of: oregano, parsley, coriander, and lemon balm (or a mixture of your favourite herbs), chopped
1 clove garlic, minced

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Spray a piece of foil, on the shiny side, with non-stick cooking spray. Place fish in the middle. Spread top and sides with half of the salsa.

In a bowl, mix all the diced vegetables, salsa, and herbs/spices.

Spread the whole mixture over and around the fish. Form a tent with the foil, sealing in the fish and vegetables. Place foil packet on a baking tray, and place in centre of oven.

Cook for about 20 minutes, or until fish is cooked to your liking.

Poster's Notes:
Yesterday, I bought a small piece of sea bass for dinner and after realizing I didn't have any recipes for sea bass, I made one up. Quantities here are for 1 person. Just double, etc. for more. A nice, easy, light summer meal. You could probably substitute ANY firm-fleshed fish. But because sea bass is so bland, the sauce did wonders for it. Halibut might also work well.
Note: The tomatoes and mushrooms release so much liquid that they cook the potatoes and fish by steaming. Serve with crusty bread or rice to sop up the sauce! A nice, light, fruity Italian red wine is lovely with this!
