Method

  1. Season the fish with salt and pepper, then slash the skin 3 times. Heat a heavy-based frying pan and add 1 tbsp oil. Once hot, fry the fish, skin-side down, for 5 mins or until the skin is very crisp and golden. The fish will be almost cooked through. Turn over, cook for another 30 secs-1 min, then transfer to a serving plate and keep warm. You’ll need to fry the fish in 2 batches.
  2. Heat the remaining oil, then fry the ginger, garlic and chillies for about 2 mins until golden. Take off the heat and toss in the spring onions. Splash the fish with a little soy sauce and spoon over the contents of the pan.

Lovely easy recipe. Didn't have chilli so used chilli flakes instead and added the soy sauce to the garlic and ginger instead of pouring it over the fish. Tasted delicious and will definitely do again!

Delicious! Have not cooked Bass before and am so glad I found this recipe. So quick and simple yet really tasty. Will be making again. I served with rice noodles and stir fried sugar snap peas.
Was a hit with my husband too!

Delicious. I doubled the soya sauce & added a squeeze of lime to suit our taste.

Agreed. This dish has very good flavour, and the chillies add punch. Very simple too. As previous poster says get the pan real hot before adding the fish for a crispy skin

Simply amazing! I tried this recipe to try and get my wife to eat more fish. That was over a month ago and I'm almost shamed to say the first time I really cooked something different. We both loved it. It's simple, the smell when you fry the garlic, ginger and chilli is mouth watering. I now cook it once a week and this has also inspired me to start cooking regular.
Note: when I cook this meal for two I normally use two fish (4 fillets) 2 garlic cloves, 25g of ginger 2.5-3chillis average size and seeded. It goes really well with noodles and asparagus. Please try and enjoy :-)
