Roasting Fish

Great for dinner parties and hungry, healthy families. Serves 4.

  • Substitute snapper for sea bass, if desired.
  • Try stuffing the fish with a combination of sautéed onions, celery, bread crumbs, parsley and marjoram.
  1. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F. Oil a baking dish large enough to fit the entire fish.
  2. Season the fish lightly with salt and pepper.
  3. Bake the fish 8 to 10 minutes per inch of thickness, or about 40 minutes.
  4. Baste the fish once or twice with melted butter.
  5. Test for doneness. Make a slit near the bone with a knife and see if the fish is flaky and cooked through.
