Wow – for such a low calorie Dinner, this is rammed packed with beautiful flavours! Sea Bass is a beautiful fish. Firm, meaty, an elegant flavour and not too fishy. Add the Butter and Fish Seasoning and on it’s own right it’s top notch. But layer on some buttery and chive New Potatoes, tasty carrots and the unmistakable bite of Asparagus and you have a super healthy yet indulgent plate that excites the tastebuds. You get a nice helping of protein and carbs, whilst leaving some fat spare for another meal. And as you’ve been so good, treat yourself to some 70% Dark Chocolate dipped in Almond Butter (mmmm!). If you want a smaller portion, drop to one Sea Bass Fillet, halve the butter and plate up 200g of New Potatoes and save 240 calories.

Sea Bass is low in calories and an excellent source of protein, selenium, essential omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins B-12 and B-6. Asparagus is a prebiotic for the microbiome due to their fibre content — augmenting the growth of beneficial bacteria such as Acidophilus and Bifidobacterium. Asparagus also contains folate, vitamins A, C, E and K, as well as chromium, a trace mineral that can enhance the transport of blood sugar into your cells.Then you have Carrots, that are a rich source of Beta carotene – a powerful antioxidant, which, among other vital uses, can be converted into vitamin A in the body to help maintain healthy skin.
