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.

I "chicken"d out of trying this receipe with fish but used Chicken instead bashed out with a rolling pin and then fried. Nice mix of flavours and would definelty try it again, maybe I'll be more adventurous and try it with fish next time!

Simple but effective. I kept the cost down by using pollack instead of sea bass and it turned out really well; the friend I cooked it for thought it was heavenly! Had it with broccoli and oyster mushrooms stir-fried in toasted sesame oil with garlic and chilli (with a dash of Thai fish sauce if you like) and it went down really well.

What would you recommend serving this with?

Absolutely beautiful, it was a new taste experience. Made my mouth water so much that I wanted more. I added a few extra chillies for a bit more heat, but I would highly recommend using the ginger rice form the grilled chili and coriander salmon recipe.

Definitely worth venturing into the kitchen to make this very simple meal

This recipe was lovely - we used a shallot instead of spring onions ( we didn't have any) and it was still yummy.

Really lovely! I put the Soy Sauce into the onions, ginger & chilli mix after cooking rather than sprinkle on the fish and it was like a spoon over sauce. Yummy! It would also be good with chicken or pork fillet too. Will definitely make again ............. but a few more spring onions next time. Recommended for easy entertaining.

Quick and easy to make. The sea bass had a lovely delicate flavour. Served with some steamed baby veg, would possibly try it with some rice next time. Very impressed.

We really enjoyed this recipe. I cooked the fish in the oven with the rest on the ingredients in some tin foil instead of pan frying it - and served with sweet potato mash and sugar snap peas. Yummy and healthy!

Very very good with a bit of heat from the chillies. But I will cut down on the oil next time.
