Cooking Method Sea Bass Tray Bake

Pre-heat your oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/gas mark 4.

Put the red peppers, tomatoes and onion in a roasting tin stir well to coat with all over with the oil, and season with  plenty of salt and pepper. Roast for around 30 minutes. Halfway through the cooking, add the white wine and olives, and toss the vegetables together. Check the vegetables are soft. If not return for a further 5 minutes.

Remove the tray from the oven. Arrange the sea bass, skin-side up, in the tray and top with the chopped garlic. Bake for 5-6 minutes until the fish is almost cooked through. Remove from the oven.

Heat the grill to high and pop the tray under the grill briefly to crisp up the skin.

Scatter the fish with the pine nuts, lemon zest, basil and coriander and a pinch of pepper.

Mix the yoghurt with the lemon juice. Serve the fish right away with the yoghurt, flatbreads and a squeeze of lemon juice.
