1 1/4 pounds sea bass fillets, skin on

Coarse salt and cracked black pepper

1/2 cup all-purpose flour, to coat fish

2 teaspoons olive oil


  1. Unwrap fish but leave it on the butcher paper. Season with salt and pepper on flesh side only. Sprinkle generously with flour, and then shake off the excess.
  2. In a 12-inch non-stick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil over medium high heat until hot but not smoking. Place the fish in the pan skin side down. Cook until golden, about 3 to 4 minutes. Turn the fish over and cook until the flesh is just cooked through and is no longer translucent, about 3 more minutes, depending on the thickness of your fish.
