Pan Seared Sea Bass with Asparagus and Mushrooms
- Sea Bass
- 1 lb asparagus spears (thick spears are best for roasting)
- 1-2 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- Kosher Salt
- Freshly grated black pepper
- Lemon juice
Preheat oven to 450. Dry off all pieces completely with paper towels. Get your skillet hot over medium high heat. Cover pan with olive oil to prevent sticking. Place the sea bass fillets in the skillet, sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Once browned, turn and brown on the other side. Place on cookie sheet lined with foil, and in oven for approximately 10 minutes or until the meat flakes easily - don't over cook. You can always let it rest by covering it with foil and it will cook a little more. So if anything, undercook.
Mix together olive oil, lemon juice, capers, and garlic, and when you serve the fish, spoon some of this mixture on top! Delish!!!
Preheat oven to 400°F. Rinse clean the asparagus. Break the tough ends off of the asparagus and discard.
2 Lay the asparagus spears out in a single layer in a baking dish or a foil-covered roasting pan. Drizzle olive oil over the spears, roll the asparagus back and forth until they are all covered with a thin layer of olive oil. (Alternatively you can put the asparagus and oil in a plastic bag, and rub the bag so that the oil gets evenly distributed.) Sprinkle with minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Rub over the asparagus so that they are evenly distributed.
3 Place pan in oven and cook for approximately 8-10 minutes, depending on how thick your asparagus spears are, until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Drizzle with a little fresh lemon juice before serving.
Get more of the ingredients that you sprinkled the asparagus with, and the olive oil, mix those together. Cut up your mushrooms, and drizzle with that dressing. Roast at 400 with the asparagus for the same amount of time. Enjoy!
