Sea Bass with Mushrooms - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Sea Bass with Mushrooms

    Here is the recipe for the fish we had on Saturday evening. I really enjoyed the mix of flavors and how the brick oven bakes the dish.

    I also put the recipe on the Forno Bravo cooking pages, so you can find it there more easily in the future:


    Ingredient (four layers)
    Two carrots
    One onion
    One medium glove of garlic
    Two stalks for celery
    4 Tbl olive oil (your dish will only be as good as the olive oil -- read our olive oil pages for ideas)

    2 lb. sea bass
    Salt and pepper

    8 oz. white mushrooms
    4 Tbl dijon mustard
    1 Tbl diced spring onions or chives
    4 Tbl olive oil

    1 cup Arugula (finely chopped)
    One tomato (finely chopped)
    2Tbl balsamic vinegar

    Slice the onion, celery and carrots, and smash and mince the garlic.

    Whisk the olive oil, capers and mustard, then mix with the chopped mushrooms.

    Mix the Arugula, tomatoes and balsamic.

    This dish works best in a terra cotta pan that will hold all the fish in a single layer.

    Fire the oven until the carbon burns off (650F+), then push the fire to one site and let the oven rest for a few minutes. Shovel out any excess coals. You want a hot oven, which is capable of browning your vegetables from the dome heat, but not so hot that you burn everything in the first few minutes.

    Place the onion, carrot, celery, garlic and olive oil in the pan, and bake for 3-5 minutes, or until the onions and garlic are translucent and lightly brown.

    Assemble the fish over the vegetables, and top with the mushrooms and mustard sauce. Return the pan to the oven to bake.

    When the mushrooms are brown, and the fish is baked, remove the pan from the oven, and top with the Arugula and balsamic. Place the cooking pan on the table -- take care to place all four layers on every plate when serving.

    My wife and I are crazy about sea bass.. it's usually the dish of choice for our anniversary.

    Was this whole fish or just a filet?

    Also, I know it varies, but about how many minutes for the final step?

    3-5? 10?

      Chives or spring onions, not capers


      They were fillets, that had been carefully deboned. Cooking the fish was more than 5 minutes and less than 15 - very scientific. :-)

      If your oven is really hot, you can put a little foil on the mushrooms to keep them from burning.

      I just got a Salmon recipe. That's next.
