Have you ever opened your fridge and tried to figure out what you are going to make for dinner? Well that is what happened last night when I was so busy working that when dinnertime came around I had no idea what I would be making. So I opened the fridge and saw that I had sea bass but no vegetable. Now I always keep either frozen spinach or frozen green beans in the freezer if ever an occasion arises that I don’t have fresh vegetables or didn’t have time to make a run to the grocery store but want vegetables (they’re served at every meal). So I opened the freezer and ‘Yes’, I had green beans and also shelled edamame. That is when I decided I would serve green beans and steamed sea bass for dinner. This only took about 15 minutes to make. It turned out delicious and was healthy as well.
I used the grill to steam the Sea bass but you can use the oven as well, preheat oven at 250 degrees and steam fish for 10 – 15 minutes depending on thickness, what you want is for it to be flaky.
1/2 lb. Sea Bass
1/2 lb. frozen Green Beans*
1 cup. frozen shelled Edamame
1 tbsp. Sesame seeds
4 tbsp. Olive oil
2 1/2 tbsp. Soy sauce (Low sodium)
Salt and pepper to taste
Sheet of aluminum foil
Pour 2 1/2 tbsp. of Olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat, add the sesame seeds and let toast lightly, do not allow to burn. once that’s done you may add Green beans and Edamame, now cover.
In the meantime get the foil and get enough to wrap your Sea bass, out the sea bass in the foil and pour remainder Olive oil and add salt and pepper. Cover the fish and put on the grill for about 10 minutes.
Go back to your green beans and edamame and pour your soy sauce over and stir. Cook for another 6 minutes and remove from flame. You should be able to bite through both your Edamame and Green beans.
Remove the Sea bass form the grill and serve along with Green beans and Edamame. Enjoy!
* you may of course use fresh Green beans, I think fresh is always better, but if you find yourself in pickle frozen works just fine. Just remember that the cooking time will vary.
