Seared Sea Bass With Bechamel Sauce

"Seared, crispy skin fish is easier to make than you think. You can make this version in 15 minutes. You can mix and match some herbs and spices to make this dish more special. You can add some garlic to the sauce. Dill is also a nice addition to this dish. This fish recipe is easy to doll up. Fish and white wines are a match made in heaven. Seared fish is a perfect with light and herbaceous white wines. They balance well the flavor and sometimes enhance it even further."
