The Ultimate Guide to Cooking SeaBass: From Our Farm to Your Table

Your Friendly Guide to Cooking SeaBass!
Hey there, fellow food lovers! Ready to dive into the world of SeaBass, one of Singapore's favourite fish? Whether it's farm-raised or wild, SeaBass is a hit for its mild, delicious taste and oh-so-versatile texture. Let's chat about why farm-raised SeaBass is a catch when it comes to both flavour and helping our beautiful blue planet.

SeaBass Showdown: Farm-raised or Wild?
Choosing between farm-raised and wild SeaBass is like picking between two great dishes - both are amazing, but each has its own special flavour. Our farm-raised SeaBass (like this 700g-800g gem or the hefty 2.2kg to 2.5kg one) comes with a promise - it’s raised in clean waters, giving it a consistent, yummy taste every time. Plus, choosing farm-raised helps keep the ocean's fish happily swimming and our planet a bit greener.



Cooking SeaBass at Home: Easy-Peasy Lemon Squeezy
Now, let’s get to the fun part - cooking! SeaBass is super easy to work with, and we’ve got some simple, tasty ways to prepare it that'll impress anyone.

Pan-Seared Magic: Dry your SeaBass fillets with a paper towel, sprinkle a little salt and pepper (and maybe some lime zest for zing), then heat up some oil in a pan. Cook it skin-side down first to get it crispy, then flip it gently. You'll end up with a crispy outside and juicy inside - chef's kiss!

Simply Steamed: For a taste of home, lightly season your SeaBass and add a bit of soy sauce, ginger, and spring onions on top. Steam it for about 8-10 minutes, and voila, you've got a dish that's bursting with freshness and flavour, without losing any of the good stuff.

Gorgeous Grilled: Marinate your SeaBass in a mix of lemongrass, garlic, chili, and fish sauce, then grill it to get that perfect char. This way, every bite is smoky, spicy, and just plain delicious, with a touch of Southeast Asian flair.

Why Farm-Raised SeaBass Rocks
Besides being super tasty, when you pick farm-raised SeaBass, you're making a thumbs-up choice for the environment. It means fewer boats out there catching wild fish, which is great for keeping our oceans happy and full of life. Plus, it supports local farmers right here in Singapore, keeping the community strong and thriving.

So, there you have it - cooking SeaBass isn't just about making a scrumptious meal; it's about making choices that are good for our health, our taste buds, and our world.

Next time you’re thinking of what to cook, remember that a simple SeaBass dish can be a small step towards a more sustainable future. Happy cooking, everyone!
