This dish unveils perfectly the natural taste of the sea bass. The extremely fresh fish is cooked in its own juice, without thick sauces, to keep it pure and delicate. The components like tomatoes and rosemary perfectly refresh the flavour of the dish and ham and potato make the taste a bit more replete.
