Sea bream with chili and basil


  • Clean and gut the fish. Rinse and dry with a kitchen towel. Make three scores on each side (make sure not to reach the bone) and rub the skin with salt and pepper.
  • Heat the olive oil in a big pan over medium to high heat (the fish must fit in the pan). As soon as the olive oil is hot enough, place the fish in and sauté for 3-4 minutes. Turn the fish over with a spatula and sauté the other side for 3-4 minutes.
  • Make a small cut on the flesh of the center of the fish with a knife to see if it is cooked. The meat must be white and fall off the bone. When ready, transfer to a serving platter.
  • In the same pan, add the ginger (cut into thin strips), finely chopped garlic, onion (cut into 0.5 cm thick slices), finely chopped chili pepper, sugar and mix for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the wine an allow 2-3 minutes for it to evaporate. Then, add the soy sauce.
  • Add half of the basil leaves, finely chopped thyme and lemon zest. Mix and remove from heat.
  • Pour the sauce over the fish and garnish with the rest of the basil leaves and the lemon (cut in slices).
  • Serve.
