Baked Seabass Parcels With Soy, Ginger And Chilli Marinade Inspired By Saliha Mahmood Ahmed

These are baked Seabass parcels and they are such a great way of cooking fish. Drizzled with a delicious marinade of soy, ginger, garlic and lime – there’s a wonderful saltiness that contrasts with the delicate flavour of the fish. You can play around with the flavours and the fish but the premise stays the same. Saliha told us on her episode of Desert Island Dishes that the meal she eats the most often is a fish baked in bread which sounded amazing and definitely something I want to experiment with. She uses a Persian flat bread to wrap around the fish and I can imagine the result is a meltingly tender baked fish.

I often cook fish in these little parchment parcels as they’re just so easy and delicious and it’s fun that you can give each person their own little parcel to unwrap. Hopefully that’s supper tonight sorted!

I’ve saved a step by step guide in my stories on Instagram if you want to have a look.
