About this recipe: A whole fish cooked with ginger, garlic and spring onions is a traditional centrepiece in a Chinese meal. Here it is served with a mixture of noodles and bean sprouts to make a very special dish.
The Chinese flavours in this dish also work well with whole red mullet, which take about 20 minutes to cook. * For Mediterranean baked sea bass, use 4 fillets, about 140 g (5 oz) each, and place on 4 oiled pieces of foil. Mix together 4 tomatoes, seeded and diced, 40 g (1½ oz) stoned black olives, quartered, 2 tbsp drained capers, roughly chopped, 1 tbsp chopped parsley, 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil and some seasoning. Divide the mixture among the fish and wrap in the foil. Bake for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, make a salad by mixing together 1 bulb of fennel, finely shredded, 1 large courgette, sliced, and 2 red onions, cut into thin wedges. Toss with 2 tbsp lemon juice, 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, and seasoning to taste. Serve the fish with the salad and boiled new potatoes.
Eggs add flavour and colour to noodles and only a minute amount of fat. Egg noodles are an excellent source of starchy carbohydrate. * Sunflower is one of the most popular oils, having a mild flavour. It is a particularly good source of vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant that protects cell membranes from damage by free radicals.

So easy, and so yummy! I'd never tried seabass before this, and I don't actually like ginger... or spring onions... or lime actually lol! So this was extremely adventurous for me, but I'm so glad I tried it. I served with Pad Thai and Edamame Beans in chili and garlic salt. Will definitely be making again! - 06 Oct 2015
