Thai Sea Bass With Lemon-Garlic Potatoes


(Recipe serves 4)

For the marinade:

  • 4 kaffir lime leaves 
  • 2 green chillies, roughly chopped
  • 1 lemongrass stalk, roughly chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 2 spring onions, roughly chopped
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 shallot, roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 3 tbsps soy sauce
  • 25g fresh coriander

For the sea bass:

  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 8 boneless sea bass fillets

For the potatoes & veg:

  • 900g jersey royals
  • 6 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 320g Vegetables of your choice – I used 160g asparagus and 160g broccoli 🥦


  1. Blitz the marinade ingredients together in a food processor until it is well combined and has made a paste. Cover the sea bass in the marinade and refrigerate for a couple of hours.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas mark 6 then boil your jersey royals in a saucepan until tender and drain.
  3. In a small bowl, mix your crushed garlic, lemon juice and olive oil. Put your potatoes into a non-stick roasting pan and gently crush with the back of a wooden spoon or spatula.
  4. Add a good pinch of sea salt and black pepper then drizzle over the lemony, garlic dressing. Put in the oven for around 15-20 minutes or until crispy and golden.
  5. When the potatoes have 5 minutes left, start cooking the veg and sea bass (I just boiled the broccoli and asparagus until tender then added to the potato pan to coat in the lemony-garlic goodness!).
  6. Get a non-stick frying pan on a high heat and add the coconut oil. When the pan has heated up, carefully place your sea bass fillets SKIN DOWN – fish should always be cooked first on the skin side, even if you don’t plan to make the skin crispy!
  7. Cook on this side for around 4 minutes then flip and cook on the other side for a minute or less (it depends how thick your fillets are, you don’t want to overcook the sea bass!). Serve up the lemony-garlic potatoes, veg and sea bass and enjoy!
