- STEP 1
Preheat the oven to fan 180C/ conventional 200C/gas 6. Make 4-5 deep diagonal slashes along both sides of each fish. Mix the curry paste with the olive oil and the juice of 1 lemon then rub all over the fish and into the cuts.
- STEP 2
Cut six 65 x 30cm sheets of foil and fold each one in half to make a rough square. Lay a fish on top of each square, squeeze over the rest of the lemon juice and sprinkle with coriander.
- STEP 3
Loosely wrap the foil around the fish, and seal the edges tightly. Put the parcels on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes. Transfer the fish to plates with the juice drizzled over, or give each person a parcel.
