Sea Bass with Avocado, Lemon and Crispy Capers: Try Marlene van der Westhuizen’s Recipe

Secrets of a French Cooking ClassMichael Olivier has shared a delicious recipe for Sea Bass with Avocado, Lemon and Crispy Capers from Marlene van der Westhuizen’s extraordinary cookbook, Secrets of a French Cooking Class.

“Sea bass is known for having mouth-wateringly succulent meat that is also excellent when grilled on an open fire. If you cannot get your hands on some sea bass, any firm, moist, white fish fillet will be perfect for use in this recipe,” Van der Westhuizen writes in introduction to the dish.

Secrets of a French Cooking Class was launched in Johannesburg last year and is available in Afrikaans as Geheime van ‘n Franse kookklas.

Olivier reccomends a Solms-Delta Rosé with this sea bass dish. Try the recipe:

Sea Bass with Avocado, Lemon & Crispy Capers

6 sea bass fillets
2 T capers
50 g butter
2 T fresh dill, chopped finely
salt and white pepper to taste
2 avocados
juice of 1 lemon
