Recipe Inspiration: Baked Sea Bass with Lemony Green Beans
We’re always keen on prepping ahead at OurPath, as we believe it’s key to keeping on top of a healthy diet, which is why we’re big fans of this baked sea bass recipe and its overnight marinade!
This marinade works well with any white fish – sea bass, cod, whatever you prefer. It’s quick and easy and then you can simply bake it in the oven when the time comes and accompany it with vegetables of your choice.
The NHS recommends we eat two portions of fish a week as part of a healthy diet. A portion is generally around 140g and is a good source of necessary vitamins and minerals. Where possible, try and support sustainable fishing if you can!
Recipe Ingredients (serves 2)
Time: 2-8hrs to marinate, 30 mins to cook
For the baked sea bass:
- 2 fillets of sea bass (or another white fish of your choice)
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- Handful of flat leaf parsley, chopped
- Bigger handful of coriander leaves, chopped
- 1 tsp ground coriander
- 1 tsp paprika
- ½ tsp chilli flakes
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 4 Tbsp olive oil
For the green beans:
- 1 lemon, juice and zest
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- Salt & pepper to taste
- 60g fresh green beans, trimmed
1) Mix all ingredients for the fish together and leave the sea bass to marinate, preferably overnight. Tupperware or even ziplock bags are great for marinades!
2) When ready to cook, preheat oven to 160°C.
3) Place fish on an oiled baking tray and bake in oven until fish is cooked (approximately 25-30 minutes). If you’re using a different type of white fish, follow the cooking instructions on the packaging.
4) While the fish is cooking, prep the beans. Zest the lemon into a large bowl using a fine grater. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice into the bowl.
5) Add the oil and salt and pepper to the bowl and whisk to combine well.
6) Steam or boil your beans in a pan of salted water. Drain well to remove all of the water.
7) Add the cooked beans to the bowl and toss, making sure the beans get coated with the dressing. Add extra lemon juice to taste, if desired.
Serve alongside the baked sea bass, with a side salad and some diced new potatoes if you fancy them.
