Stuffed Sea Bass:

Ingredients (serves 2):

Stuffing : 2 tablespoons butter 2 tablespoons diced shallot 2 tablespoons pepper 1 peeked tomato, seeded and chopped 1 tablespoon of finely cut parsley Salt, black pepper

1 sea bass 4 tablespoons melted butter 1 peeled and diced onion 1 pepper 1 bunch dill 1 tablespoon lemon juice Salt, black pepper

Preparation:

Melt butter in a frying pan, add shallots. Put to one side. Add tomato, parsley and salt, mix well. Preheat oven to 375°F (200°C). Wash fish under cold running water, dry with paper towels. Stuff the fish, tie with string. Grease an oven dish with 2 tablespoons butter, add fish and surround with slices of onion, pepper and sprigs of dill. Combine the remaining butter and lemon juice, pour over fish. Bring to the boil and add salt and pepper. Cook in oven for 30 minutes and keep moist by sprinkling with water every eight minutes. The fish is ready when it is firm to the touch and the flesh falls away easily.

Hi Rik, you are correct Sea Bass is Leverk - and Coupra is a totally different fish, its generally round/oval shape fish, whereas Leverk is longn and slim, also Coupra tend to be the cheaper fish to buy.

Re: Stuffed Sea Bass / Balaton Salad

Sorry guys I only new it as sea bass but after a bit of searching I found this :-

the “cupra” (royal dorado), a fish brought from the Aegean Sea; and imported Mediterranean sea bass.

LAVRAKI
"Loup de Mer" European Sea Bass, lean white fish with moist tender flakes

TSIPOURA
"Royal Dorado" Mediterranean fish with mild flavor

but I think that this recipe could work for both different types of fish either levrek or cupra

actually there is not a lot of info on the web about these different types of fish only I could find results in restaurant menus.

Anybody have any good info ???

Re: Stuffed Sea Bass / Balaton Salad

hi all again,

Well a friend of mine cleared this up for me. Coupra is Bream. Actually I have never heard that name before - Bream. I looked it up in google and found this;

Gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata) and sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) are the marine fish species, which have characterized the development of marine aquaculture basin in the last two decades in Turkey.

Never too old to learn something new.
