Ingredients

  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp sundried tomato paste
  • ¼ tsp Cooks Ingredients Five Spice Blend
  • 2 tbsp Chinese rice vinegar
  • 4 tsp clear honey
  • 180g pack 2 boneless sea bass fillets
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 300g pack rice noodles

Method

  1. Put the onion, tomato paste, five spice, vinegar and honey in a small saucepan and bring to the boil, then remove from the heat.

  2. Pat the fish dry on kitchen paper and score the skin several times, then season. Heat the oil in a frying pan. Once very hot add the fish, skin-side down, and fry for 3-4 minutes until crisp. Turn the fillets and cook for a further 1 minute.

  3. Microwave the noodles according to pack instructions. Add the tomatoes and the onion mixture to the pan with the fish and heat through for 1 minute. Transfer the noodles and fish to serving plates and spoon over the tomatoes and juices.

Cook’s tip

This recipe is also delicious with salmon instead of sea bass. Cook the fillets in the same way, frying for a couple more minutes for thicker pieces of fish.

And to drink...

Boekenhoutskloof Porcupine Ridge Syrah, South Africa, is wonderfully smooth with aromatic notes of violets and spice, and black cherry flavours.
