ROASTED SEA BASS WITH GARLIC & CHILLI BUTTER
- 25 mins cooking time
Preheat your oven to 190C/ 170C fan/gas mark 5.
Wash the sea bass inside and out and pat dry with kitchen paper.
Make about 3-4 slashes across the flesh of the fish, ensuring you do not cut to the bone.
Prepare the roasting tray by rubbing a thin coating of the butter all over the surface of the tray.
Put the remaining Lurpak® butter in a bowl and mix in the chilli and garlic until soft and well combined.
Spoon the butter mix into the fish cavities and place the lemon slices and the thyme on top of the butter.
Lay the sea bass on the buttered tray and roast for about 20-30 minutes, depending on the size of fish − the flesh should feel firm to touch.
Remove from oven and leave to rest for 5 mins before serving. Season and serve with crushed new potatoes and green beans.
