How To Cook Whole Black Sea Bass | with Simeon Watson of the Goose Hummock

Simeon Watson

Hello My Fishing Cape Cod! We are now well into black sea bass fishing season, so today I wanted to share with you a recipe you can try at home in your own kitchen.

This recipe is for whole black sea bass. We'll go over all the details for how to prepare a whole black sea bass in the video below. 

Sea bass are such a delicious fish, with plenty of white flakey meat. Serving whole black sea bass (instead of filleted sea bass) is definitely a great way to turn heads at the dinner table.

  1. That looks fantastic!! nice production quality, guys!!

    1. It was delicious! And Simeon in the man. 😎

      LMK if you give it a try Doug!

  2. I can’t wait to try this recipe. I cooked two whole sea bass on the grill, and found it to be easy and less work then filleting the whole fish. I also think that filleting the fish increases its degradation . Just as soon as that meat is exposed to air, it is less fresh. Keeping the fish whole maintains it longer

    1. Well said Jane. 🙌🏻 LMK if you try Simeon’s recipe, and say hello to Tom for me!
