Lemon and Basil Roasted Sea Bass
If you caught our review of Saucy Fish back in June you’ll know we’re big fans of their fish and matched sauces – we recently picked up a mini recipe book with our fish and this is one of the included recipes. Saucy Fish have been kind enough to let me share it with you!
This recipe is for succulent sea bass, which is perfect with sweet roasted Mediterranean veg. Enjoy!
- 1 pack of Saucy Fish sea bass fillets
- 100g cherry tomatoes
- 1 red pepper, sliced
- 1 yellow pepper, sliced
- 1 lemon, zest and juice
- 10g of fresh basil, coarsely chopped
- Olive oil
Heat the oven to 200ºC/fan 180ºC/Gas 6. Lay the tomatoes and peppers in a roasting dish and drizzle with olive oil. Mix the lemon juice, zest, basil and a tablespoon of olive oil and smother over the sea bass fillets (save some basil to sprinkle over when serving)
Lay the marinated sea bass on the roasted veg and return to the oven for 15 minutes
The bass will be white and flaky when cooked. Sprinkle with basil and serve immediately.
