Sea bass recipe with olive pesto and candied lemon


  • sugar
  • 50 g white wine vinegar
  • 120 g Taggiasca olives
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 untreated lemon
  • 4 sea bass fillets
  • 1 stalk of celery

For the olive pesto
Prepare a syrup: cook 50 g of sugar with 50 g of white wine vinegar in a saucepan for about 5 minutes, then leave to cool. Blend 120 g of pitted Taggiasca olives with the syrup and 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil.

For the candied lemon
Obtain the zest of 1 untreated lemon with a potato peeler; squeeze the juice. Cut the zest into chunks and blanch for 1 minute in boiling water. Drain and cook it in a saucepan for 15 minutes with the lemon juice and 80 g of sugar.

For the sea bass
Cut 4 sea bass fillets in half and roast them in a non-stick pan with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, first on the skin side for 5 minutes, then on the pulp side for 1 minute. Salt at the end.

To complete
Serve the fillets with 1 clean celery stalk cut into diamond shapes, its washed and dried leaves, the olive pesto, the candied lemon and, to taste, chopped green olives and pieces of lemon pulp.
