Whole Sea Bass


1 Whole Seabass, descaled and gutted

1 Lemongrass, roughly chopped and tough outer stems removed

20g Ginger, sliced

1 Red Chilli, sliced in half lengthways

A Small handful of Coriander

2 Limes, sliced

This whole baked seabass recipe is full of aromatic flavours and is incredibly simple to create.

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. Place the whole seabass on a baking tray large enough for it to fit comfortably. Lightly score the flesh with your knife – this helps let the flavours cook into the fish.
  3. Inside the cavity of the fish place some ginger, lemongrass, half a chilli and some coriander. Scatter the remainder over the fish and some underneath it. Place the sliced lime onto the fish and drizzle over the soy sauce. Scatter across the sesame seeds and spring onions. Then place into the preheated oven for 25 – 30 minutes until the fish is just tender and the skin is crisp.
  4. Serve the fish with a pinch of Maldon salt across the skin, and alongside some wok fried greens and fluffy jasmine rice.
