Salt and Chilli Sea bass
Inspiration for this dish came from my recent trip to Turkey. As mentioned in previous posts the region I stayed in was a small fishing village called Gulluk. There was fresh sea food available everyday – from jumbo shrimp to king prawns.
One of my favourite types of fish is Sea bass slightly lighter than other white fish it has a distinct taste and is very versatile – you can even barbecue it!!!
I believe fresh sea food is seriously underestimated here in the UK. This is my own recipe and I wanted to share it with you to show that sea food can be tasty when cooked at home too. Furthermore, this dish was a bargain at under £4 pounds. It serves 2 and all ingredients purchased from Lidl!
I’ve chosen the healthy option and not used any oil. If you prefer you can use a splash of olive oil depending on how you like the taste of your fish.
You will need:
2 fillets of sea bass
1 red chilli (chopped)
4 cloves of garlic (finely sliced)
spray oil (fry light)
crusty bread to serve.
1. Spray the pan with spray oil and add the garlic and chilli. Coat in the spray oil. Add a dash of water regularly to stop it from burning and a good couple of pinches of salt. Fry for 1 minute until softened.
2. Add the sea bass to the pan and sear on both sides for about 3 minutes on each side or until cooked.
3. Continue to coat both fillets with the chilli and garlic.
4. Serve with crusty bread.
There you have it salt and chilli sea bass. Healthier than a take away and cheaper than a restaurant. Let me know if you try this. Enjoy x
