This flavorful, healthy sauce really complements the mellow taste of baked sea bass. For presentation purposes, I baked the sea bass separately from the sauce, but I usually follow the recipe below, and I think you should too!

Chunky Tomato Sauce
Prepare the Sea Bass
Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a saucepan, brown the garlic in one tablespoon olive oil. Add the tomatoes and stir. Add the tomato paste, sugar, salt and pepper. Simmer until the chunks of tomato begin to soften – about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the balsamic vinegar and fresh cilantro and remove from heat.
Place the sea bass in a shallow baking dish. Pour the sauce over the fish and cover. Bake immediately for eight to 10 minutes.
Using fresh herbs in this recipe makes all the difference.
