Unlike other saltwater fishes found in India, Seabass does not have a strong flavour of its own. It is a white-fleshed fish with succulent, buttery, and juicy meat, making it the perfect fish to experiment with different flavours. It easily soaks up the flavour of the ingredients and spices you use.
