  • Gilt head bream fillet(s)140g : 2 whole
  • Garlic clove(s) : 3 whole
  • Red chilli(s) : 1 whole
  • Fresh ginger : 50 g
  • Fresh coriander : 0.25 bunch

  • Maldon salt : 2 pinch(es)
  • Freshly ground black pepper : 3 Turn


  • ETAPE 1

    Preheat the oven to 200'C.

  • ETAPE 2

    Start by gutting the bream if it needs it. Take a clean a cloth or kitchen paper and dab dry before you start to fillet. Remove the fillets of the bone. Pin bone the flesh pulling each pin bone towards the head using your fish tweezers and remove the skin. Cut the fish into thick goujons around 2 inches by 1 inch in size.

  • ETAPE 3

    Peel the ginger and roughly cut into strips. Peel and crush the garlic. Cut the chilli into rings.

  • ETAPE 4

    Take two squares of aluminium foil and place one on top of the other. Place 6 pieces of fish in the centre of the foil and then add a little garlic, ginger and chilli. Add a drizzle of peanut oil, season with salt and pepper and finish with a few sprigs of coriander. Seal the foil around the fish and crimp the edges tightly together so that no juices escape from the parcel. Repeat until you have used all of the fish. Transfer the parcels to the oven and bake for 5 to 7 minutes.

  • ETAPE 5

    Once removed from the oven, unfold the foil and add a squeeze of lime and a dash of soy sauce. Take care when opening the parcel as the steam inside will be very hot.

  • ETAPE 6

    Tip onto a plate with the juices and enjoy!
