Make a foil parcel,stuff the inside of the fish with herbs/dill/parsley/shallots….salt/pepper,knob of butter and a glug of white wine…seal parcel,cook at 180 for 20-25 mins….very nice and you’ve got a ready made light sauce,whisk in creme fraiche to make fancier…jambalayaSubscriber
Some good ideas above, especially the parcel one. Bass works well in Asian style dishes too, eg with ginger and lemongrass. It’s quite nice if you are going to pan fry it to colour the skin initially, be careful not to over cook, find a recipe with timings and stick to it (a good shortcut is to heat pan with little oil/butter brown skin for a short time then put pan into oven at say 160 and finish the cooking – it only needs a few mins and keeps fish moist)
Based upon your request for what goes with, google “crushed jersey royals” recipe on bbc website – they work really well and are easy to do, then add some other simple veg – say wilted spinage.
Quite nice to have a sauce, butter based, but not too much

So we had ‘Bass in the place Boroughbridge’, which was fried in butter with a bit salt with fresh salad (as opposed to 4 day old salad) & herby baby spuds. Absolutely gorgeous!Posted 5 years ago
I think the guy at the fish market cocked up though cos I got 2 Bass, 2 Sea Bream, 16 big raw prawns & 3 large squid for £12.50.
