On 12th May 2016, This was Dinner…
If I could only eat one fish for the rest of my life it would be sea bass. So as soon as I saw this recipe in the – you’ve guessed it – John Whaite cook book I had to try it as I had a packet of red curry paste in the cupboard.
- Peel and grate a couple of potatoes
- Score some sea bass fillets
- Preheat the oven to 180°c (fan)
- Get red curry paste, lime, butter, oil & seasoning ready
Throw it together…
Season the potato and mix well. Get a clean tea towel and put the potato in the middle and squeeze really well to get out all of the water. Divide into four portions. Press into four patties, press it tight – use a chefs ring if you can. If you don’t have one I have used a large cookie cutter in the past.
Heat some oil and butter in a large frying pan and then carefully transfer the röstis to the pan, give it another pat down to help it hold together. Cook for a couple of minutes on each side.
Coat the sea bass in the curry paste with a small splash of oil then place everything on baking trays and cook in the oven for about 15 minutes until the fish is cooked through.
Dish it up…
I had some spinach going spare so I served it all on a bed of that.
A nice simple meal that feels like you have made an effort and a lot healthier than fish and chips.
