Crisp-Topped Marinated Sea Bass with Green Chilli, Lime and Coriander

Introduction

This recipe is inspired by the classic Bengali fish-fry, where the fish is marinated in a lovely combination of garlic, ginger, coriander, chilli and lime before being crumbed and shallow-fried. I’ve altered it to an oven-baked dish here for ease, but you could by all means make the authentic version as an alternative: just dust the fillets in flour, then dip in beaten egg and breadcrumbs and fry the fish for a few minutes on each side in a little neutral oil. Serve with buttery white rice.
