Parmesan crusted sea bass

Last night both my wife Becky and I were back home quite late. When you are tired after the whole day in the office all you want is a nice tasting dinner and preferably one that does not take ages to cook. I love fish and seafood. Not only it is healthy but also tastes great and fish usually takes very little time to cook. This recipe is super quick. Normally I do not mix fish and cheese but for a quick and extremely tasty dinner this combo is a winner. You can put the whole dish together in 15 – 20 minutes, including cooking of the rice! It does not get easier than that. So if you are planning to be home late make sure that you have sea bass fillets in the fridge.parmesan crusted sea bass
