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.

Didn't have the chillies so just missed them out and it was still delicious.

Really great recipe. It looks so impressive but is really easy. Served this with oriental vegetables and thai rice when I cooked for my boyfriend for the first time, and he used to be a chef, and even he was impressed :)

Excellent dish, would use more ginger next time, served with a lovely ratatouille went down a treat

I have cooked this dish many times now and each time the diners have loved it.

I've made this several times for me and my husband. He's a bit funny about fish (!) so the fact that he loved is was a God send. I've served it with stirfried veggies and rice or noodles.

They're simple ingredients but they go together very well! I was short on ingredients when i made this but I used frozen garlic and ginger which worked just as well :)

I have now converted my husband onto fish with this recipe, previously he hasn't eaten it for 30 years! I found the chilli drowned the taste of the fish and would use less next time. The fish was cooked beautifully.

Was very tasty. Would do again but I used too much chilli this time so would hold back a little next time. If anyone has suggestions for giving it a milder chilli flavour I would be grateful. I'm a wimp, clearly.

This was fantastic. I am always striving for quick and tasty meals. I added some rice noodles just as I put in the spring onions along with the other ingrediants and then served the noodle mixture and placed the fish on top with a few bits of chilli and spring onion to decorate. My husband who is not a fish lover said it was amazing and was almost like 'masterchef'. We will definitely be having this again. Can't recommend it highly enough

Great recipe, I am a huge fan of fish, but had never cooked sea bass before. I think the success of this one is not letting the flavours of the Ginger, Garlic and Spring onion overpower the fish. I added the spicy part of the dish quite sparingly and it worked really well.

I presented it with saute potato and served it with a plain salad. I enjoyed every mouthful!

Great recipe, but...WHY do people insist on calling it "Sea Bass" there aint no such thing. Its a "Bass" you wouldn't say "Sea Cod" would you??

worked okay i guess...quite overpowering with the salt AND the soya sauce, think i'd drop the salt in future.

Simple, quick and tasty. Served with mixed bean and chick pea salad. Good for a quick meal but not a 5*.
