Many people don’t like sea bass. That’s because there are only two ways to make it good – garlic lime (Thai style) or grilled. For Thai style, you’d need to prepare the “soup” which comprises crushed garlic, fish sauce, chilli, lime juice, sugar and water. Once the soup is boiling, you can slide the fish into the boiling soup.
If you had made deep cuts into the fish, you should be able to tell if the meat is cooked. Cook on both sides, then sprinkle a generous amount of crushed cilantro.
