[Cooking] Seabass, watercress pesto, toasted pine nuts

After a couple of weeks of mediocre fare, I finally had some inspiration again and produced something worth posting.
I found some nice seabass fillets and when I saw the watercress various recipes I'd seen online clicked in my head. The fillets were simply pan-fried for two minutes on the skin side, seasoned with salt and pepper and flipped. I picked the watercress leaves and blitzed them with half a garlic glove and good olive oil, and a bit of salt and pepper.

I'm really happy with how this came out. :D

Did you eat both fillets? That's what's funny- you plated one and ate both}:P

That looks fantastic!

And we can make something very like it over here. Levrek (sea bass) is in season - not sure we can get watercress but the varieties of Yesilik (green stuff) - 3 to 4 bunches a lira - are expanding all the time.
