  • 2 seabass fillets
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup kumquats, sliced with mandolin
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Season the seabass fillets with salt, pepper, and fresh rosemary.
  2. In a hot skillet, sear the seabass fillets in olive oil for about 2 minutes on each side until golden brown. Add minced garlic to the skillet and cook for an additional 30 seconds, until fragrant. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes, until the fish is cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, assemble salad.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, shallots, red wine vinegar, garlic, mustard, and anchovy fillets until well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. On a large plate, combine the sliced tomatoes, kumquats, parsley, and mint. Pour the anchovy dressing over the top and toss everything together until the vegetables are evenly coated. 
  6. Serve with rice, couscous, or bread for a balanced meal.
