My sea bass with pesto butter recipe…


2 fresh sea bass fillets

2 tbsp pesto

1 tbsp butter

Salt and pepper to season

15ml Olive oil


In a small bowl, combine the pesto and butter.

Preheat a pan over a medium heat, add 15ml of olive oil and heat.

Season the sea bass fillets with salt and freshly ground pepper.

Place the fillets into the pan skin side down, cook for 5-6 minutes, turning halfway through cooking.

Remove the sea bass fillets to a plate.

Melt the pesto butter and drizzle over the fish.

Sea bass is lovely served with salad or you could also enjoy it with baby new potatoes.  Simply delicious!

    I love homemade pesto, it really makes a difference to a meal when the ingredients are fresh and there’s nothing dodgy in there! It needs a lot more basil than I realised, the first time I made it!
    This is a dish I would really enjoy.
