Sea bass baked in foil, Cooking fish in foil, which is very simple to do, is often underestimated, yet it should be preferred as it preserves most of the nutritional properties of the food. It is also recommended in low-calorie diets as it is possible to cook food without seasoning. This type of cooking is used most often to cook fish (generally sea bream, sea bass and salmon), but pasta and vegetable first courses can also be cooked. The flavor will be light, similar to boiling but with greater taste as it is not dispersed in water. The foil can be formed from a sheet of aluminum foil, or parchment paper (to be preferred). If you opt for parchment paper, it is spectacular and practical to serve the food still in the foil.
Ingredients for 1 person
