Parmesan Dill Sea Bass



I love Parmesan cheese. For me it replaces bread crumbs and that means no gluten. It is light and healthy and full of flavor. The other day I made our favorite Tartar sauce and so I wanted the perfect fish to go with it. Because I had a day out with the ladies, I didn't have much time to make dinner. I put this dish together in 20 minutes. So simple and so tasty. Try it as an alternative to fish and chips. Just as tasty with half the calories. The recipe will work good with any flaky whitefish, you will just have to adjust the baking time according to the thickness of the fish. 


Parmesan Dill Sea Bass



4 Sea Bass filets
1/3 cup milk
2/3 cup Parmesan cheese
4 tbsp chopped fresh dill (more if you like)
2 tbsp melted butter 
1 lemon, cut into wedges

Preheat oven to 375, and spray a large baking dish with cooking spray/ Pour milk into a ziplock bag and place the sea bass into the milk and shake to coat. 

On a large plate Add the Parmesan cheese, and dill and mix it all together. 



Take the each piece of Sea Bass and dredge it in the Parmesan mixture and turn to evenly coat each side, pressing firmly. 
Heat a skillet and 1 TBSP canola oil over medium heat. Press the sea bass down firmly in the skillet to sear. About 2 minutes on each side. 






Place each Sea Bass fillet in the baking dish. Take a wedge of the lemon and squeeze the juice over the top of each fillet - a wedge of the lemon per each fillet. Place 1/2 tbsp butter on top of each filet. Place baking dish in oven and bake for 18 minutes.
