This is a great simple way to present sea-Bass! At first I was concerned that the fennel would over power the fish but, this was not the case. 20mins, as pointed out is enough time for this recipe. All the flavours are spot on!

I think 30 mn cooking is slightly too long 20 t0 25 mn is plenty. Icooked one that we fished last weekend for just under 20mn .
