    Beach-style sea bass

    Allow marinading time for this yummy summer fish dish.


    • for the fish
    • 4 x 125g sea bass fillets
    • 1 large ripe avocado, stoned
    • 1 lime, juice
    • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    • 50ml crème fraîche
    • for the marinade
    • 2 salad onions, chopped
    • 1 green chilli, chopped
    • ½ garlic clove, peeled
    • 3 tbsp chopped coriander
    • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 lime, juice and zest
    • 1 orange, zest


    1. In a blender, blitz the marinade ingredients; pour nearly all of it over the fillets. Chill for 1–2 hours.
    2. Purée the avocado flesh with the remaining ingredients until smooth; season.
    3. Heat a frying pan until very hot; cook the fish skin-side down for 4 minutes, then on the other side for 1 minute more.
    4. Serve it with the avocado cream and a little of the remaining marinade. Delicious with homemade fries.

    The waxy yet zesty tones of good Semillon are rich enough to encompass this flavoursome marinade, while highlighting the fish. Peter Lehmann Back to Back Semillon 2006 Barossa Valley, South Australia 364358
