12 minute Sticky Asian Sea Bass
12 minute sticky Asian Sea Bass - Soft, flaky fish with a sweet and spicy flavour kick.
Prep Time 4 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 12 minutes
Servings 2 servings
- 1 tbsp. sesame oil
- 1/2 of a red chilli finely chopped
- 3 tbsp. honey
- 1 tbsp. dark soy sauce replace with tamari if gluten intolerant
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- 1 clove of garlic peeled and minced
- Juice of 1/4 lime
- 2 Sea Bass fillets - skin on
- 1/2 tsp cornflour/cornstarch
- 1 tbsp. brown sugar
- Handful of fresh coriander torn
- 1/2 red chilli sliced thinly
- Slices of lime
Preheat the oven to 200c/400f
Mix the oil, chilli, honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and lime in a small bowl.
Place the sea bass fillets, skin-side down, on a baking tray. Sprinkle on the cornflour and rub it into the fish gently.
Spoon on the honey-soy sauce mix (it will pour off a little, but that's fine). Sprinkle on the sugar and place in the oven to cook for 8 minutes. Half-way through cooking, open the oven and baste the fish with the sauce in the tray (it will be stickier now it's been in the oven).
Once the fish is cooked, take out of the oven and baste again with sauce, then sprinkle the top with coriander and slices of chilli.
Serve with lime slices and some boiled rice or salad.
