Lemon and basil baked sea bass

DSC_0137Fish is an absolute dream for days when you want something quick without compromising on healthy. In some ways its the ultimate fast food. I usually cook it with chilli flakes but I had a basil plant on my window sill and I decided to try something new.

To make baked sea bass you will need

1 sea bass fillet per person (or more if you’re hungry)

Olive oil

1/2 handful basil leaves

1/2 a lemon

Salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Place the fish skin side down in a roasting tray (or similar). Drizzle over olive oil, squeeze over the lemon juice, then slice the lemon half and place over the fish. Tear over the basil and season with salt and pepper. Bake for approximately 15 minutes or until the fish filled turns opaque and white.
