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.

Quite filling and 1/2 cup cooked rice was all I could manage. The fish tasted delicious and the crispiness was just perfect. Used Olive oil instead which may have contributed to extra heaviness...:)

Easy to make with few ingredients and clear instructions. I served with rice noodles, mangetout and baby sweetcorn. It was absolutely lovely and I will definately be making this again.

Made this twice now. I am new to cooking but I found it easy to make and the wife loved it. Did it with roast vegetables.

Sainsbury's had a special offer on sea bass yesterday so I got some and did a search on GF. I had all the ingredients to make the first recipe to come up - this one- so that was decided. What an easy tasty recipe! Filleting the sea bass was the hardest part (I usually buy filleted fish)!!! I served it with a stir fry rice. This will stay in my binder to make again (and again!!) Thank you GF!!

I impressed myself with this simple dish. It looked and tasted wonderful and could easily have come from a top restaurant. I just served with basmati rice that had been moulded in ramkins before tipping onto the dish. I would not change a thing.

Quick, easy, and very nice tasting. I served on a bed of soba noodles which set it of nicely.

Cooked this for my wife who is particular about her fish dishes. Easy to make and a success so will be added to my binder. I used full sea bass not fillets and it worked well.
