Cajun Sea Bass with Salsa

Cajun Sea Bass with Salsa

This is a bit of a treat dish as sea bass is not the cheapest, but it does work as a family meal and is also good if you are ever doing a dinner for friends or even just having a couples dinner at home and want something a bit special.  You could also try this with a cheaper fish such as Pollock.

For Cajun Mix:

  • Sea Bass Fillets
  • 40g melted butter
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 2 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Salt and Pepper

For Salsa:

  • 4 plum tomatoes, deseeded and chopped
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander
  • 2 chopped spring onion
  • Salt and Pepper

Method:

  1. Mix together spices
  2. Pour melted butter onto both sides of the fish
  3. Sprinkle the Cajun spices over each side. Set aside
  4. Mix all salsa ingredients together
  5. Fry fish – dry fry skin side down first for 3-5 mins on each side
  6. Serve with salsa

To make into a family friendly meal I just do the kids fish without the cayenne pepper and I serve it with boiled rice alongside the salsa
