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.
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
