The black sea bass is a striking, bluish-black fish that loses its brilliant blue color when taken out of the water, and turns black and white. Black Sea Bass have lean, white flesh with a moderately firm texture, small flakes and a delicate flavor.
A sea bass fillet, whether baked, steamed, fried, sautéed or poached, is an impressive entree sure to please those who love a delicate, buttery, tender fish. Don't overpower the delicate flavor of the fish with strong herbs and spices. It works well with mushrooms, tomatoes and citrus.
Sea bass is a good source of Magnesium, Phosphorus, Protein, Vitamin B6 and Selenium.
