    getting ready to bread sea bass fillets
  • Take each fillet and lightly dredge in flour, coat in the beaten eggs and then completely cover with panko crumbs and let sit on a wire rack for at least 15 minutes before you cook them.
  • Heat oven proof pan on stove and add your cooking oil of choice, I use avocado oil and butter for this recipe.
  • Once butter has melted and is sizzling a bit, add your fish fillets and let brown, but not burn.
  • Turn fillets and nicely brown the second side, no burning allowed!
  • Insert oven proof thermometer probe into center of one pan fried sea bass fillet, and place entire pan into pre-heated oven until thermometer reads 145.
  • Remove from oven and serve.
