Sea bass in coconut cream


Wash, pat dry and season the sea bass with rock salt, black pepper, coriander, garlic and lime. Marinade for 30 minutes in the fridge. Preheat the oven to 240°C/gas mark 9
Meanwhile cook the parsnip, the sweet potato and the pumpkin in salted water for 3 minutes, drain and reserve
Pat-dry the fish fillets again, scrape off the rock salt and discard any of the marinade
In a skillet, heat the olive oil and butter amd fry each fillet of fish skin-side down until crisp. Reserve
In a medium-large heatproof dish, line the bottom with tomato slices, chilli, chopped coriander and coconut cream. Top the layers of tomatoes with slices of fish next to each other
Place the cooked vegetables, okra and slices of onion around the fish. Sprinkle with the rest of the olive oil
Place in the oven for about 10–15 minutes to finish off cooking the fish. Keep an eye on the fish making sure it doesn't dry out. Take out the oven and let it rest for a couple of minutes
Top with coriander and sprig of thyme. Serve immediately
