    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!!!
