Fish at the Fox. It's great served over noodles, soba ones are particularly good as they are very flavoursome. To finish add a couple of wedges of lime to squeeze over.
- 6 sea bass fillets, about 140g each, skin on, descaled
- 3 tbsp sunflower oil
- large knob of ginger, peeled and shredded into matchsticks
- 3 garlic cloves, peeled, thinly sliced
- 3 fat, fresh red chillies, deseeded and thinly shredded
- bunch spring onions, shredded length-ways
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
Season the fish with salt and pepper, then slash the skin three times.
Heat a heavy based frying pan and add 1 tbsp oil. Once hot, fry the fish, skin side down, for 5 minutes until the skin is very crisp. The fish will be almost cooked through. Turn over, cook for another 30 seconds to 1 minute, then transfer to a serving plate and keep warm. You'll need to fry the fish in two batches.
Heat the remaining oil, then fry the ginger, garlic and chillies for about
2 minutes until golden. Take off the heat and toss in the spring onions.
Splash the fish with a little soy sauce and spoon over the contents of the pan.
