Stuffed Sea Bass with Roasted Jersey Royals
Stuffed with home grown green and yellow courgettes, this dish just screams summer!
Stuffed Sea Bass with Roasted Jersey Royals Stuffed Sea Bass with Roasted Jersey Royals

There's nothing like a whole fish as a centerpiece dish for a summer's evening dinner, preferably BBQ'd (when the weather permits)! As that's not very often (!!), this is the next best thing... stuffed with seasonal vegetables from the garden and roasted in the oven with some gorgeous baby new potatoes. Sublime!

  1. Start with the grated courgettes and wrap them in a tea towel and wring out as much water as possible. Transfer to a bowl with the chilli flakes, the grated pecorino and some seasoning. Mix well
  2. Then put the new potaoes in another bowl, along with some seasoning and a drizzle of olive oil. Mix well, transfer to a roasting tray and roast in a hottish oven for 25/30 minutes, until they're nicely browned (you're going to add in the fish after ten minutes of the cooking time)
  3. Whilst they're in the oven, stuff the cavity of the sea bass with the courgette mixture, stuffing it in as far as you can. Then, score the fish on one side, slide in a few lemon slices, halved, season and drizzle with olive oil. Add in with the pototoes (if there's room!) and cook for the remainder of the 20 minutes or so. The fish should then be ready at the same time as the potatoes!

I'm Siân, a passionate foodie all my life... I started out working with hotels and restuarants in London, to get young people into the industry and develop their basic skills. Moves and changes over the years have taken me in broader directions, but with a different work/life balance now, I'm back to food... sharing easy, healthy meal ideas for you to experiment yourself with in the kitchen! There's lots of fish, beans and vegetables! Happy cooking!
