This sea bass in caper sauce is very easy to prepare and has proven useful on those occasions when I couldn't spend too much time in the kitchen but needed a delicious dish with few ingredients. I love fish and I try to eat it at least once a week. It's also a great option for Lent. You can also prepare the caper sauce for other occasions to serve with chicken or turkey. The result is just as delicious!
