This simple and tasty fish dish has a beautiful presentation and is a great paleo meal to fix for company. Classic flavorings like lemon, capers and dill are an ideal complement to sea bass. Salmon can be used in place of the sea bass with a slightly longer cooking time.

    The Sea Bass recipe was delicious !!!!!!!!! Mmmmmm! It was so good and easy to fix.

    My sea bass was very thick (approx 6 in) & it needed way more cooking time. In fact I put it in initially for 15 mins, turned up heat & gave it 10 min more but it was still inedible. Back in oven another 10 min – eventually my husband ate his but I was too disappointed to eat mine. It would help if you said how thick the fish should be for cooking times

    We found a sale on Salmon so we used this as a substitute and kept everything else the same but cooked it a little longer, turned out amazing – this was a restaurant worthy meal!!!
