Method

1
Start by salting the sea bass lightly, place the fillets on a plate skin side down, sprinkle with the sea salt, and leave for 1 hour in the refrigerator.
2
Cut the chilli and spring onions into slices, making sure to use all the spring onions’ green tops. Trim the green beans and cut them into 2-centimetre pieces.
3
Take the sea bass fillets out of the refrigerator and with a sharp knife slash the skin side of the sea bass diagonally so the flesh is just exposed, 3 times on each fillet. The salt should have evaporated.
4
Melt the butter in a frying pan until golden, place the sea bass fillet in the pan, skin side down, and press the sea bass down lightly to make sure the whole surface of the skin is in contact with the pan. Add chilli and green beans, let fry for 3-4 minutes, turn the fish over, add the spring onions, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and fry for another 1-2 minutes.
5
Serve right away.
