To serve (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 5.

  2. For the baked sea bass, put the coriander (leaves and stalks), garlic, chilli, palm sugar, oil, salt, sugar and lemon juice in a food processor and blend to a paste consistency.

  3. Put the sea bass on a baking tray lined with aluminium foil. Cover the fish with the coriander paste and another sheet of foil. Bake for 10 minutes then remove the top sheet of foil to uncover the fish and cook for a further 10-15 minutes.

  4. For the coriander raita, mix all of the raita ingredients together in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
