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.

Hi I have made this recipe time and again. The only addition I have made is to serve it with Amoy straight to wok noodles tossed in terriyaki sauce. It has gone down a treat with all my dinner guests.

Very good recipe. Easy to do and tasty, especially if you like spicier food which I do. Pretty healthy to boot. 5 stars for a midweek dinner option.

Wow! A fantastic success, even with my 15 yr old who doesn't like fish but asked for more! Will definitely do again as pretty easy (as long as you get the fishmonger to fillet and scale fish for you!) but still impressive. Will do for friends soon.

Did this with salmon and was really nice, even forgot to add soy sauce and it was still amazing. Though I'd prob add more chill, garlic, ginger and spring onions though prob because salmon portions bigger than seabass. I served this with sweet potato mash- corinander, chilli and ginger in the mash. very healthy and nice

Simple, quick and so tasty. I have tried many sea bass recipes but this wins for taste and simplicity. Even the skin tasted great and I would ordinarily not even try it. A big hit with my husband also.
