Pan-seared seabass with kale: A birthday celebration

Yesterday, I celebrated my birthday. My husband presented a beautiful three-layer yellow cake (filled with fresh strawberries!) two nights early this year, so I could celebrate with family that was leaving Saturday morning. I won’t tell you exactly how old I am, but–after all of the Thanksgiving feasting, pies and birthday cake–I will tell you that the day called for a delicious and light birthday dinner.

When my husband asked what I wanted to do for dinner, I promptly replied “Fish. At home.” So, he prepared this delicious and healthy seabass with kale and cherry tomatoes.

First, he pan-seared the seabass in canola oil until it was golden in color. Then, he flipped it over and baked for 10 minutes at 400F degrees. He then added butter and white wine to the pan, covered the fish and baked until it was throroughly cooked. He topped the fish with a splash of the butter wine sauce and served with sauteed kale and cherry tomatoes.

It was simply delicious! A tasty and light dinner, perfect for a celebratory dinner or even just after a few days of carb-heavy Thanksgiving dishes.

TELL US:Do you have a favorite celebrary fish dish? If so, we’d love to hear from you!
