1 whole sea bass, cleaned and gutted
For the marinade: Juice of 1 lemon 2 tsp black pepper 1 tsp mustard oil 1 clove garlic, finely sliced. 1/4 tsp ground turmeric 1/4 tsp chilli powder 1/2 tsp curry powder
For the paste: 1-2 green chillies Bunch of fresh coriander, roughly chopped
Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Rinse the sea bass then pat dry with kitchen towel.
Mix the ingredients for the marinade in a bowl large enough to fit the fish. Whiz the chilli, coriander and some salt and pepper into a paste using a blender (add a tiny bit of water if necessary) and spread over the fish. Toss in the marinade mixture and leave to marinate for 20 minutes.
Lift the fish out of the bowl and wrap in foil. Cook in the oven for 7 minutes, then turn it over and cook for a further 7 minutes. Open your packet and check fish is cooked through before serving with rice and salad. When things get a little warmer you can also BBQ the fish to cook it.
