Recipe (for 4–6 guests)
4 each "portion" Sea Bass*
or 2 Fillets from Wild Sea Bass
2 each Fennel
2 each Lemons (grated dresh or dehydrated peel)
100 ml Olive Oil
1 Teaspoon Toasted Fennel Seeds
1 Each Star Anis
100g Baby Leaves (including Baby Kale, Spinach Leaves)
2 Tbsp Dry Seaweed Salad mix
50g Edamame (fresh or frozen)
1 Tbsp Organic Liquorice Tincture (food grade)
Fillet Sea Bass (or ask your fishmonger), and make three parallele incisions in the skin to allow the marinade to fragrance uniformly. Make marinade by mixing the juice of the Lemons, Olive Oil, Dill and Spices, Salt and Pepper, and cover the Sea Bass fillets, placed skin down in a shallow/gratin pyrex dish. Cover with cling film and reserve in fridge for over 24 hours.
Make Fennel purée by boiling diced Fennel and once cooked, blitzed in food processor. Season to taste.
Steam Edamame and Seaweed mix for just about 1 minutes (or defrost, if using frozen) and stop the cooking process by draining them in a bowl of icy water.
To serve, spoon Fennel Purée in the plate, skinned/seeded tomato wedges, baby leaves and all remaining ingredients – Served Cold.
Sprinkle with a few drops of Liquorice Tincture and Olive Oil/Lemon Juice vinaigrette.
* Sometimes Sea Bass are called portion because they are "the size of one serving". Usually, farmed, so all fish come the exact same size and weight.
