    I’d like to share a simple and oil-free bass recipe using oven. No oil is needed and we essentially “steam” the bass in oven. If your kids or friends don’t like fish bones, this is a good dish for them.

    We only need a few simple ingredients besides bass fillet. They are asparagus, carrots, cilantro, soy sauce for fish that can be easily found in asian stores.

    Here is a 2 minute video on the steps:

    If the video above doesn't show properly, here is the direct youtube link.

    We use ingredients with mild flavors so that they don’t hide the natural sweet flavor of the sea bass. The soy sauce further enhances the natural sweetness of bass and carrots. The asparagus absorbed with all the flavors is my kids’ favorite.

    We often cook fish with asparagus, onion, carrot together so that kids eat more vegetables. What's your favorite vegetable that goes well with fish dishes?

    I'm glad to hear that. The original way to steam fish is to use a steamer, but I found oven is good enough most f the time. If I catch something like a perch next week, I'll make a video with steamer to show the original way.

    Very well made video.

    I'll be that guy though... I'm not putting fish from the bay anywhere near my son's dinner plate.

    Thanks natural_one and it's good know. I've just searched the web and found a 2018 report on fish in san diego bay from the gov here:https://oehha.ca.gov/media/downloads/fish/press-release-fish/sandiegobaypressrelease073118.pdf

    Based on this article, the safe ones are "two total servings per week of Diamond Turbot, Pile Perch, Rainbow Surfperch, or Spotted Turbot, or one serving per week of Black Perch, Round Stingray, Shovelnose Guitarfish, or Spiny Lobster". The most fun to catch ones are off the table:emoji_cry:, so more catch-and-release and it's time to pick up my dusty hoop net:emoji_sunglasses:.

    Thank for the info, Chknlyps2.

    Great video fishingap .

    sweet and simple.

    Not having to wash steamer pot and trays is very appealing.

    I’ll be trying the method with lemon pepper since we are all out of steam soy sauce.

    And you know there is no substitute, can’t replace it with regular soy sauce.

    Hi ScubaLee03, I'd glad you like the recipe. I've also got text messages on alternative sauce. As long as you have soy sauce, you can get a simple replacement of the steam sauce off-the-shelf. I simply mix cilantro + green onion + orion (optional) with soy sauce for 30 minutes so that the soy sauce absorbs all the flavors and we're ready good to go. I sometimes squeeze them a little to shorten the time. If I can hook a good fish this week, I'm planning to create a video to show the simple homemade sauce.

    Enjoy your dish!

    Here’s a lil “steamed” vermillion filet with the oven per your heating instructions. Everything turned out perfect.

    I did cheat and added some butter... but shhh.

    Anyways, apparently I had forgotten how sweet carrots can be steamed. Yum!

    Looking forward to learning that homemade sauce.
