Prepare the sea bass

Make the mousse


Step 1: Prepare the sea bass

Cut the fish under the gill, as far as the central bone. Split the skin all along the back.

The bass is the same fish as the perch. The first is fished in the Mediterranean, while the second is caught in the North Atlantic.

Slip the blade of the knife under the skin, and peel it back over the whole side, pulling it toward the tail. Do the same thing on the other side.
