Simply Simon’s Sumptuous Sea Bass


Raise a glass to Simon. This might not look flash, but it tastes INCREDIBLE!

‘Who’s Simon?’ you may ask. Simon was an intern working in the HelloFresh kitchens when he came up with this fish recipe which was duly named after him. Simply Simon’s Sumptuous Sea Bass from Hellofresh is indeed sumptuous and simple, even though you’ll need to be cooking three separate ingredients at once.

I’m a bit nervous about trying recipes when no nutritional information is listed, but I estimate that this is around 500 calories all in, and it’s only that high because you are required to use 3 separate tablespoons of olive oil. As easy as HelloFresh’s recipe kits and meal plans are to throw together, I do find the recipes in their book to be quite carb heavy. However this dish tasted outstanding – the flavours emanating from the garlic, ginger, vine tomatoes, fish sauce and lime juice are superb, complemented brilliantly by the crispy new potatoes and pan-fried, buttery sea bass. Yum, yum, yum.

This is an excellent ‘date night’ option if you’re planning on cooking something nice for a loved one as it can be rustled up in half an hour. If sea bass is your thing, I’d also whole-heartedly recommend baked sea bass with peppers and pine nuts and sea bass and miso risotto.
