Salsa verde

  • 1/4 cup of chopped parsley

  • 1/4 cup of chopped basil
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 jar of capers with their juices
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
  • 1-1/2 cups of olive oil

  • Place the salsa verde ingredients in a blender. Start by using one cup of olive oil puree. Add additional olive oil if needed. Taste and add additional seasoning if needed.
  • In a large bowl, add sea bass and pour salsa verde over top. Place in the refrigerator and let marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Add three cups of vegetable or chicken stock to a large pot over high heat. Bring to a boil. When stock boils, add root veggies. Reduce heat to medium and let the mixture simmer until the veggies are soft when pierced with a fork.
  • Place a large pan over medium-high heat. Drizzle the bottom with avocado oil. Place sea bass filets in the pan, one at a time, and brown on each side. About two to three minutes on each side.
  • Pour in the marinade and bring it to a boil. Cover and reduce the heat to medium-low. Let the fish simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until fully white and cooked through the center.
  • When root veggies are tender, strain through a colander, being sure to save the chicken stock or vegetable stock. Set aside. 
  • Place the root vegetables in a large bowl, and slowly add a little bit of the stock to the vegetables.
  • Using a hand blender or a food processor, puree the mixture, drizzling in olive oil as you go to create a creamy consistency, and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • To serve, place the root vegetable puree on the bottom of a plate or shallow dish and top with sea bass and salsa verde sauce.
  • Note: For extra flavor, you can add sauteed fennel on top. And to do this, just place the sliced fennel bulb in a shallow pan drizzled with olive oil and sauté over medium-high heat until the fennel is tender and slightly caramelized. Place the fennel on top of your fish for added flavor. Enjoy.
