Fat

We all need to eat a small amount of fat because it protects our organs and helps us grow. But we need to be careful about how much fat we eat and what kinds of fat, because in higher levels it’s associated with weight gain, diabetes, cancer and heart disease

Method

Score the sea bass on both sides at 2cm intervals, cutting roughly 1cm deep, then place into the steamer tray. Sprinkle the inside and both sides of the fish lightly with sea salt.

Mix the spring onions, chilli, ginger, coriander stalks and most of the leaves together on a board, then stuff and push into the cavity and slits in the fish. Squeeze over the lime juice, adding the squeezed lime halves to the tray. Hit it up with a splash of soy sauce, then cover with the lid. Fill the steamer pocket on the front of the oven with around 1 litre of water, then slot the steamer tray into the bottom of the oven so that the metal nozzle on the tray engages with the back of the oven, and set to steam for around 25 minutes, or until cooked to perfection.

Serve on a bed of fluffy rice, drizzled with the juices from the bottom of the steamer tray, a drizzle of sesame oil and the remaining coriander leaves sprinkled over.
