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.

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

Tried this last night! Was a bit dubious because there doesn't seem to be much to it. But my word, it was delicious. Much more flavoursome than I would have imagined! Followed the instructions (but cut down for 1 person). I would recommend plenty of ginger and lots of spring onions as they do shrink, but flavours are great.

I eat this along with cumin rice. Just heat a little olive oil and gently fry some cumin. Add your rice and mix. At this point you can add frozen peas if you wish. Then add boiling water, reduce heat to minimum and cover for 15 minutes. The secret to good rice is not to mess with it whilst you're cooking. Also, with rice, for every volume if rice you use, use just less than twice the volume of water. I promise, this will always work provided you don't mess with the rice and keep it covered over the lowest heat.

Enjoy

My boyfriend and I went fishing in our boat on Sunday and caught two bass. I filleted one last night and fed up of the usual garlic and lemon juice recipe opted to give this a go. Absolutely superb. I didn't turn the fish, I just put a lid on the pan before adding the chillis, ginger onion and garlic about 3 minutes before the fish was done.My boyfriend doesn't eat fish (he just catches it) so I used this same recipe for him but substituted the fish with a nice free range skin on chicken breast. I guess the clean plate meant there were no complaints!

I cooked Pollack instead of sea bass, but it worked very well, is very simple & I'd definitely recommend.

My husband has eaten sea bass on many occasions but reckoned that this was the best he had ever had.
