Steamed Sea Bass with Cabbage and Basella

Sea bass is a beautiful white fish that cooks really fast. This means it is perfect for steaming. It also has a very mild flavor that works great with very little seasoning.

You need a deep dish with a lid for this recipe.

Heat some flavorful oil like mustard and fry some red chilies, mustard seeds, cumin and caraway seeds. Add basella leaves along with sliced cabbage.

Stir till they start to wilt. Place fish pieces and then bury it inside the leaves. Cover and cook for 10 mins on low heat.

Open and check. The fish would be most probably cooked by now. Move the fish to one side. Be careful because we don’t want to break it. Increase the heat and reduce the sauces collected at the base. The dish is almost ready. If you want it dry remove the fish and then continue cooking. Do not overcook this lovely fish.
