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.

Delicious! I put some noodles in the pan with the ginger and spring onion and added soy sauce. Also served with spinach. I will definitely be making this again.

Lovely flavours in this recipe. It's fresh, spicy and healthy!

I used sea bass the first time I tried it and it was gorgeous if a little pricy. Same recipe works with other cheaper fish though.

I normally always cook meat but fancied a change. So pleased I picked this to start my fish session with. I love chilli's and garlic, but the ginger works great with them and the soy. The sea bass isn't cheap but I would recommend anyone to try this. I served with home chips which is on here, some carrots and broc, nothing was left on a plate! A must try this one.

Just made this for my husband who is quite fussy about food but loves Seabass - big success! I don't eat fist but hubby says it was delicious and the aromas from the sizzling ginger, chilli & garlic while cooking was lovely. I found the recipe easy but this is the first time I have used root ginger so it did take a bit of time to prepare & chop the ginger, chilli, garlic & spring onions. Would definetly make this again but maybe use slightly less chilli as hubby found it a bit spicy.

This was cooked for me, and I was amazed at how delicious such an incredibly simple dish could be. Nice with some wilted pak choi and steamed rice or new potatoes. Highly recommended!

I didn't find this as easy as it claimed. The skin did not turn crispy, it fell off, and the fish fell to bits as well. Also, I found the ginger overwhelmed the whole thing. I think I used to much - how large is a "large knob"?

I could see how it could be excellent with practice, but think it needs at least a "Moderately easy" grading.

Sounds like a good idea and I have attempted it. My question is how do you 'shred' the chili etc. I have looked fo a shredder but no luck. I have tried a grater but they don't really work. What am I missing?

This is a really simple, straight forward recipe and the results were delicious. I am trying ideas to get my husband to eat more fish and this one 'went down a treat'! I served it with fluffy rice and peas. Yum!
