For the yuzu gel: In a small saucepan, boil the water with sugar and agar agar, when boiling, remove from the stove, add yuzu juice and transfer immediately to a chilled container. Once solid, mince and sear until creamy and velvety. Pass through a strainer, place in a squeeze bottle and store in the fridge.

Prep the arugula: julienne the arugula and shiso finely and store in the fridge. When ready to use, season with salt and the two oils.

For the sea bass sauce: put all ingredients in a shallow oven pan and bake at 180° for approx. 30 minutes, turn the bones over and bake an additional 30 minutes. Filter the obtained broth and discard all solids. Reduce the broth to have circa 200 g of liquid, season to taste.
