  • 2 pounds sea bass cleaned and cut to be flat.


  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Line a baking dish or sheet with aluminum foil.
  • Cut another aluminum sheets large enough to hold your fish ( one for each fish you have).
  • Cut parchment paper as large as the foil we just cut for each fish you have.
  • In a medium bowl combine the first 11 ingredients and mix well.
  • Rinse the fish and pat dry.
  • Place each parchment paper in one of the aluminum foil.
  • Place each fish on the parchment paper. Sprinkle some salt and cumin over each fish.
  • Divide the vegetable mix between the fish you have and press lightly.
  • Bake in the middle of your oven for 25 minutes, then move up in the upper rack and cook for another 5-10 minutes until lightly charred.


Note1: adding cilantro is my personal preference but feel free to play with the recipe. You might consider using dill or chives.

Spicy potato works great with sea bass, also we usually serve fish with baba ganoush or tahini sauce.
