roast sea bass

Had a fantastic meal out the other day I had roasated sea bass with capers, it was so tastey the skin tasted just like roast chicken skin the meat was nice and light and fluffy and the capers gave it a nice zest.

I would love to cook this at home if anybodys got any ideas?

Roast Sea Bass with Capers and Lemon

by Giorgio Locatelli

    * Servings: 4
    * Level of difficulty: Easy
    * Preparation Time: 20 minutes
    * Cooking Time: 15 minutes


    * 2 sea bass fillets, weighing about 175g each
    * 2 branches of fresh bay leaves
    * 2 Lemons, thinly sliced
    * 4 tbsp capers
    * Olive oil
    * 5 tbsp fish stock
    * 2-3 tbsp dry white wine
    * freshly ground salt and black pepper


1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/gas 7.

2. Dry the fish well with paper towels. Place a fillet on a board, skin side down. Place one branch of bay leaves on top, then two or three slices of lemon, one overlapping the other. Sprinkle with some of the capers, a few drops of olive oil and a little sea salt.

3. Place the second fillet on top, skin side up, to make a fish sandwich.

4. Using a very sharp knife, slice the sandwich into serving-size pieces. Massage the fish with more oil.

5. Place a few lemon slices in the bottom of a shallow baking dish into which the fish pieces will fit snugly in a single layer. Place the fish pieces on top. Pour over the fish stock. Scatter with more bay leaves, capers and lemon slices, and drizzle with olive oil.

6. Place in the preheated oven and roast for 7 minutes.

7. Remove from oven, splash a little white wine over the top and return to the oven for another 5 minutes. If the fillets are particularly thin, reduce the cooking time. You do not want to dry the fish out.

8. Remove from the oven and serve  at once
