Sorry but my photos really don’t do justice to this Signature Salt Baked Whole Sea Bass ($32.80). 🐟🐟🐟 You probably have no idea how MASSIVE this fish was - about 13 inches? Their whole fishes all weigh in between 800g to 1kg, so you are guaranteed a plump & meaty fish every time! πŸ‘πŸ»
.
Chef Joel shared that their sea bass is sourced from a local seawater farm in the waters of Pulau Ubin that doesn’t use any antibiotics or chemical additives, so you can safely eat with a peace of mind! πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ’― Fresh batches of fish are delivered within hours of harvest to ensure optimum freshness, so when they say FRESH CATCH OF THE DAY, they are not kidding you! πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
.
With quality & freshness of the fish taken care of, it is more than half the battle won. βœ” This version is baked in salt to highlight the freshness & natural sweetness of the fish, just like what you see at Bangkok night markets! πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­ Besides helping in even cooking from head to tail due to even heat distribution, the salt layer also helps to seal the flavours & juices of the flesh πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹, yielding an incredibly moist & succulent flesh beneath that crusty skin (which you should not attempt to eat just like me! πŸ˜‚)
.
Despite not having additional seasoning, the natural sweetness of the thick & tender flesh is enough to pull it off πŸ’•, which is enhanced after inheriting the fragrance of lemongrass sticks & basil leaves stuffed within. The freshness of the fish is apparent as there is no fishy smell or taste at all. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» Especially when paired with Chef’s special Thai-style chilli sauce, this dish was really FISHing good! 🀀
.
All you need are simple ingredients & seasoning when you have such quality ingredients. πŸ‘ŒπŸ» They also offer other cooking methods such as Teochew SautΓ©ed Fillet ($21.80) cooked with fermented soya bean sauce & ginger. ⭐ Alternatively you can choose to have your sea bass steamed in superior soy sauce, spicy lime, crispy with red curry sauce, or Thai-style assam. 🌢 Priced at $32.80 for a whole BIG fish or $18.80 for sliced fish, this is pretty worth it & good for sharing! ❀
