Sea Bass with lemon and potatoes
Well, I always would like to see that here in England we enjoy summer every year with lots of clear nice sunny days but everyone would know how much I would be lying. Unfortunately sun wasn’t good on our side in the last few weeks in London but the moment that changed, we remembered how summer should be.
In Greece summer is always combined with good fish. On the last time I was in the local market I got large sea bass to cook. I have to say that having a big sea bass its not an easy task to cook but its sure worthwhile.
Well, so how do you do it? Hmmm… I guess there are different ways but usually I love putting the fish in a foil and baking paper to cook it. It makes the fish cooked really nicely and keeps all the flavours and taste.
The following is a simple recipe I think that anyone can do and cook a nice fish without a lot of trouble as the only thing he needs to do is …leave it on the oven!
OVEN BAKED SEA BASS WITH LEMON
- 1 sea bass
- 1 onion chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 bunch of parsley
- 2 teaspoons of olive oil
- 2 lemons
- 1 baking foil
- salt and pepper
Take the sea bass and wash it and clean it properly. Put as much salt and pepper you would like inside and outside the fish.
In a big bowl add the onions, garlic cloves as well as the olive oil and the lemon juice. Create mixture that you pour on top of your fish and let it soak in it.
Cover the fish with the baking foil and cook it in the oven for around 30-40 minutes on 180c. Times always vary depending the oven.
For the potatoes
- Cut the potatoes in small pieces and place them in a baking pan
- Mix in a glass the juice from the second lemon that has remained together with olive oil a teaspoon of mustard, oregano and water. Stir them really good and spread the sauce on all the potatoes and mix them using your hands
- Place them on the oven.
Ideally you should place them on the same time and time it correctly. Usually it takes 30 minutes for the potatoes –if they are cut on small pieces
Add the parsley on the end when you serve it.
