I got this simple recipe from
Ideally, cook the bass on a barbecue, over an even and quite gentle heat. Failing this, grill it under a medium grill for about 8 minutes on either side, depending upon how thick the fish is.
While the fish is cooking, prepare the dressing. Mix the water and salt together. Crush the chopped garlic and stir this into the salted water. Add the bay leaf, rosemary and oil and stir carefully, pressing the rosemary and bay leaf hard with a spoon to release their flavour into the water. When the fish is cooked, arrange it carefully on a warmed platter and pour the dressing all over it before serving.
