Summer sea bass with caper and chive butter

This dish radiates long summer evenings to me, and although it might be raining as I type this it definitely wasn’t when I soaked up the late afternoon sun alfresco and enjoyed this light dinner.

This is a fuss free dinner, and super easy to make. Not only that but it’s healthy too – sea bass is low in calories and an excellent source of protein, selenium and essential omega-3 fatty acids.
