Serves:

    This is a quick, delicious main course. Serve it with spinach or a plain green salad. Sea bream also works well.

    Serves: 4
    Preparation: 10 minutes
    Cooking: 10 minutes

    Ingredients
    4 tbsp olive oil
    4 fillets of sea bass, scaled and skin on
    ½ onion, finely chopped
    2 cloves of garlic, crushed
    1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1 fresh chilli, finely sliced
    2 lemongrass stalks, bashed
    200ml canned coconut milk
    1 tbsp freshly chopped parsley or coriander (whichever you prefer)
    2 tbsp almond flakes

    Method

    Rinse the fish, pat dry and check for any bones. Make 3 cuts on the skin of the fish; this will help the fish not to curl once in the hot pan.

    Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in a non-stick frying pan, add the sea bass fillets skin down and hold them down with a flat spatula for 10 seconds so they don’t curl.

    Cook over low-medium heat for 2 minutes until the skin is golden and the fish more than half cooked. Turn the fillets and cook, skin up for another 2 minutes. Gently transfer to a warm platter.

    In the same frying pan add the remaining olive oil and when hot, add the onion, cook it on a low heat for 5 minutes until soft.

    Then add the garlic, ginger, chilli, lemongrass stalks, coconut milk and salt and pepper to taste. Stir and cook for 5 minutes.

    Plate the sea bass fillets on a bed of greens and gently pour the hot sauce over each fillet.

    Scatter with fresh coriander or parsley and flaked almonds.

    Serve immediately.
