Sea bass with sizzled ginger, chilli & spring onions

Sea bass with sizzled ginger, chilli & spring onions

I think when you are cooking it is a combination of the smell and look of the dish that wakens your taste-buds. Now this recipe will set your taste buds tingling. The aromas released while cooking this dish will have everyone licking their lips in anticipation ...

Serves 6 (2 grams car per serving)
6 x sea bass fillets, about 140g/5oz each, skin on and scaled
about 3 tbsp oil
large knob of ginger, peeled and shredded into matchsticks
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
3 fat, fresh red chillies deseeded and thinly shredded
bunch spring onion, shredded long-ways
1 tbsp soy sauce

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.

Hi Sue, and thanks for your comment. Sometimes although we do our best, most of us can suffer food presentation disasters ... but we can still enjoy the flavour.
