Baked Sea Bass with Lemon & Caper dressing

This elegant, gluten-free main is special enough for a dinner party, yet simple and quick to make for no fuss entertaining.

Ingredients

  • 4 x 100g/4oz sea bass fillets
  • olive oil

For the caper dressing

  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • grated zest of 1 lemon, plus 2 tbsp juice
  • 2 tbsp small capers

     

  • 2 tsp gluten-free Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp chopped flat-leaf parsley, plus a few extra leaves (optional)

Method

  1. To make the dressing, mix the oil with the lemon zest and juice, capers, mustard, some seasoning and 1 tbsp water. Don’t add the parsley yet (unless serving straight away) as the acid in the lemon will fade the colour if they are left together for too long.
  2. Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Line a baking tray with baking parchment and put the fish, skin-side up, on top. Brush the skin with oil and sprinkle with some flaky salt. Bake for 7 mins or until the flesh flakes when tested with a knife. Arrange the fish on warm serving plates, spoon over the dressing and scatter with extra parsley leaves, if you like.
