Right, I have never tasted Sea bass, but it seems to be popular in Turkey.
I fancy having a go at cooking some when we next come out, so has anyone got any yummy ways of cooking it?

I can do it by conventional oven, or crockpot. Come on, help me impress my wife (again:) )

On a bbq or griddle so the skin goes all crispy :) Thats how they tend to do it in the restaurants. Mind you, I am the last person anyone would ask for cooking tips!!

The best way to cook a sea bass is to sprinkle a little olive oil on the skin and bung it in the oven with head attached.Set the switch to 190 for 15-20 minutes.
Onced it is out of the oven,sprinkle a little lemon juice on,wait for a few minutes to cool and for the lemon to seep in.Then serve it with a nice side dish of salad and flat bread...mmmm...nice
ooops..l just noticed you can cook it in a conventional oven..ooooh!

yeh theres a fish that you completly cover and bury in rock salt... cook it in the oven.... then crack open the salt and remove the fish..... i wonder if it must be really dry since salt absorbs liquid

Do you mean salt cod? we've had the way you describe it's way of cooking and, very surprisingly it was not dry or even salty tasting at all, it was very moist.

I have had fish cooked like that, and it's not dry at all and very tasty, might be a Middle Eastern style as it was a Lebanese restaurant.

You can pack the cavity where the guts were with garlic butter, rub with salt and pepper then fry in olive oil on a high heat to crisp the skin. Once the fish is done the butter will have melted and come out of the fish which can then be poured over the served fish. Nice salad and bread and your sorted!

Hi Zuber pleased to see you are still around after your recent troubles, but now back to the subject in Yalikavak all the good fish restaurants serve Sea Bass (Levrek) cooked in a coating of sea salt & usually brought to your table in flames which makes it look fantastic. It is the most moist fish I have ever eaten & certainly does not taste of salt. Certainly worth a try if you get the chance.

As long as the fish still has its skin on when covered in salt, it will not take the moisture out of the flesh. Its a lovely fish and the best ways are always the simple ways, never over season, i always find lemon and a touch of garlic is all it needs - Yummy!!
