  1. 1 whole Sea Bass fillet (approx 350g)
  2. 3 Tbsp butter (melted)
  3. 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  4. 1 tsp minced garlic
  5. 1/4 tsp chilli powder (optional)
  6. 1 lemon
  7. salt & pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius
  2. Remove Sea Bass from packaging and pat dry with paper towel
  3. Line a baking tray with tinfoil and grease with spray and cook
  4. Create a marinade by mixing the butter, lemon juice, garlic and chilli powder (optional), in a jug or small bowl
  5. Arrange fillet on the baking tray, skin side down
  6. Pour the marinade over the fish
  7. Thinly slice a lemon and lay the slices on top of the marinaded fillet
  8. Season with salt and pepper
  9. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes (I found the perfect time for this fillet was 18 minutes)
  10. Use the left over sauce to glaze the fish before serving
  1. Do not overcook the fish. If you find you have a thin fillet, first try cooking for 15 minutes before adding those few extra minutes.
  2. You can substitute Sea Bass for most white fish.

    This is absolutely delicious – and so simple. It enhances the flavor of the fish, rather than cover it up. Thank you!

    Made this with wild garlic ( freshly picked) and made into a paste. It was delicious
