None 0 0 5 0

I have been looking at the recipeKalyan posted the recipe of Chilli Garlic Balsamic basa and then Isaw this lovely technique of cooking meat called Pan Roasting which was begging to be tried ASAP. So I decided to buy sea bass and proceed it with.

I did a little changes to Kalyan's recipe though, added dried thyme to the marinade along with what he had written and the balsamic vinegar I used was the normal one. And coming to the discovery of the pan roasting which is most certainly one of the best meat cooking technique I have used it a while. It uses a combination of stove cooking and oven cooking and the results you get are amazing. The fish was perfectly cooked not over done but still browned from outside like N likes it, what you do is heat a pan drizzle some oil. pan fry both sides for a little time on the stovetop (for the fish I did a minute on both sides) and later put the same pan in the oven to continue cooking. Result a delicious healthy fish is ready.
