Thai Ti Wrapped Sea Bass


Sea bass is one of my favourite fishes to serve, as it is moist and rich tasting. The ti leaves lend a wonderful fragrance and flavour to the fish and are a perfect combination with the traditional Thai tastes of Thai Basil and Kaffir Lime Leaves.

The Nam Pla Cilantro dipping sauce lends an exciting touch to the ti cooked sea bass. The bursting flavours of garlic, ginger, cilantro, fish sauce, and chiles allow each diner to adorn their fish to their taste.

4-6 ounce sea bass fillets 1Ē thick
2 large ti leaves center stem removed
4 sprigs of Thai Basil
4 fresh kaffir lime leaves
Salt and Pepper
Sliced shitakii mushrooms
Sliced Maui or Walla Walla onions
Slivered carrots

Nam Pla Cilantro Sauce-see below

Take two of the ti leaves and form an even X
Place a kaffir lime leaf and a few Thai basil leaves on the center of the X on the ti leaves
Place a small handful of the vegetables on the cross point of the Ti leaves.
Salt and Pepper the vegetables.
Salt and pepper both sides of the sea bass.
Place the sea bass on top of the vegetables.
Place a kaffir lime leaf and a few Thai basil leaves of the fish.
Carefully bring the underneath Ti Leaf upwards to meet at the top holding with your fingers while you. bring each of the other two ends the ti leaves on either side of the ti leave you are securing with your fingers. Fold down these last two ti leaf ends and secure with bamboo skewers.

Serve with Nam Pla Cilantro Sauce.
