Sea Bass En Papillote with Lemon Dill Butter
If there's one thing I wish we would eat more of, it's fish, and there is no cleaner way to eat than en papillote, which means cooked in parchment paper. As tomatoes and asparagus are coming on the scene, I decided to throw those in the mix along with some spring onions and golden beets.
An easy way to get some good fats into your diet along with some killer flavor, is to make an herb buttery spread. Coupling Sea Bass along with plant-based oils is fantastic way to incorporate more good fats as well as superb flavor! The rich buttery flavor of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter paired with lemon, dill, salt and pepper is the perfect combo for my Sea Bass en Papillote.
I can't express to you how delicious this dish is, seriously make it as soon as you can. When you incorporate lots of vegetables, good fats and lean proteins your diet, it is amazing how good you feel.
