Honey Almond Rice and Steamed Sea Bass

4 persons


Ingredients for Sea Bass;

2 pieces of sea bass fillet (4 halves)

Salt and black pepper


Ingredients for Rise;


1 cup up 200 g basmati rice

(2 tablespoons salt and 2 cups of hot water to soak the rice)

100 g peeled almonds

2 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon of Balparmak Honey



For service:

4 chopped chives

4 branches of chard leaves



First of all, you will need a steam cooker to make this dish.

Or, you can do this by placing a strainer into a pot.

- Soak the rice with 4 cups of hot water and salt for about 3 hours and drain the saline at the end.

- For the pre-cooking stage of rice, add 2 liters of water to a pot and boil it.  Add rice and cook for 4-5 minutes. Drain the rice without losing time and shower it with plenty of water.

- Place the chard leaves under the steam pot you have prepared and pour a little boiled rice on it.  Cover the saucepan and cook the rice in steam for 1 hour.  Rice will swell up to 3 times their current amount.  Open the cover and lay the fish on it.  Bake for another 15 minutes.

- Fry them in butter until golden brown. Take it off the stove by adding the honey.
