Marinated Sea Bass with citrus

Soft, acid and fresh, Citrus Marinated Sea Bass, the perfect combination for a starter to surprise your guest.

Last week, I did some research to cook cured sea bass fillet. While checking different recipes I found some interesting information to cook fresh sea bass in acids. Using vinegar, lime or lemon juice, fish can be cooked in acids. Therefore, I decided to experiment with the sea bass and acids to find the right balance between lime and vinegar.

After a couple of tests and adjusting the vinegar, I found the perfect recipe to make marinated sea bass. If you like boquerones en vinagre with that acid taste, for sure you are going to like this recipe.

I can ensure that it is easy to make as only requires to freeze the fish fillet 24h in advanced.

If you have friends/family coming over and want to surprise them, this is your recipe. You prepare it a couple of days in advance and it is ready to serve and surprise them.

Let me know if you cook it at home and you surprise someone.
