Baked Fish

This recipe turned out delicious..adapted from the Greedy Italian Cookbook. Simple and delicious . That’s the way cooking should be. Not forgetting super healthy!


  • 2 sea bass/trout about 450g each
  • 50g ground almonds
  • 50g ground hazelnut
  • 8 slices of anchovies
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 40g pine nuts
  • handful of chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 2 eggs- beaten
  • breadcrumbs 50g ( I actually used panko which turned out good)
  • salt and pepper
  • 40g of freshly grated parmesan

Pre heat oven to 200 deg C.

Add anchovies, pine nuts, ground almonds, hazelnuts and garlic into food processor and whizz till you get a paste. Put into a bowl and add into it the beaten eggs, parmesan, salt and pepper ,breadcrumbs and chopped parsley.

Wash and pat dry both fish. Take the filling and stuff into the fish’s belly cavity .Put into a baking tin and tie with string in 3 places. Make a few cuts on the fish between the string tie. Drizzle with olive oil and season again with some salt and pepper.

Bake in the oven at 200 deg C for about 25-30mins. I noticed the fish didn’t get much colour towards the end , so I changed the settings to grill function for the last 10 minutes. Served with chopped parsley and a drizzle of olive oil. Perfecto!
