As it is Chinese New Year next week I expect some people might be thinking about eating Chinese food over the weekend so I thought a recipe for a healthy alternative to a takeaway might be in order. This quick and easy recipe is for sea bass with spring onion, chilli and ginger.
Use one sea bass fillet per person. Slash the skin three or four times then pan fry the fish skin side down in a hot, heavy based pan with a little olive oil. After around 5 minutes the skin should be crispy. Turn the fish for just a minute or so until cooked through. Remove the fish from the pan and keep warm.
Add ginger, chilli, garlic and spring onions (all thinly sliced or cut into fine matchsticks) into the same pan for a couple of minutes until starting to crisp a little. Pile onto the fish with a dash of soy sauce.
Serve with stir fried greens and maybe some egg fried (brown basmati) rice.
This is a great way to have some delicious fish, plenty of veggies and it's just as quick as going for a takeaway as well as much healthier. Enjoy, and have a great Year of the Tiger.
