Boy howdy. This sea bass will kick your ass.
The sauce is super simple. Cherry tomatoes, oil, and vinegar. Use enough salt to make it pop. Use enough vinegar to give it some bite. Make sure there is a hint of pepper. So good.
Then there is the fried artichokes. That’s hard you might think. Nope, super easy. Toss them in cornstarch, toss them around in some oil, and crunchy deliciousness.
And of course sea bass is yum. You can use other white fish if you like, but why?
