Recipe: Baked Chutney-Stuffed Sea Bass

Rank: Intermediate

Time execution: 1 hr 25 min

Can be served for: 3 to 4 persons


  • Bunch fresh cilantro sprigs, washed, leaves picked

  • 5 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

  • 3 cloves garlic, left whole

  • 2 (3/4-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled

  • 3 green chiles, seeded

  • 3 2/3 ounces freshly grated coconut

  • 30 pistachio nuts, shelled

  • 2 teaspoon cumin seeds

  • Vegetable oil, for frying, plus 2 tablespoon

  • 2/3 teaspoon brown mustard seeds

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 pound 4 ounce sea bass, butterflied (ask your fishmonger to do this for you), skin scored at 2-inch intervals

  • 2 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • New potatoes, boiled

  • Green salad

  • 2 lemon, cut into wedges


  1. For the chutney: Blend the cilantro, lemon juice, garlic, ginger, chiles, coconut, pistachios, and cumin in a food processor to a puree.

  2. Heat a small amount of the vegetable oil in a small saucepan over a medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the mustard seeds. Be careful of the popping mustard seeds and splattering of oil. When the mustard seeds start to pop, remove the pan from the heat, and add the seeds to the chutney mixture. Season the mixture well with salt, and freshly ground black pepper.

  3. In a separate bowl, mix 3 tablespoons of the chutney mixture with 2 tablespoon vegetable oil. Brush the chutney mixture all over the sea bass, and set aside to marinate for 30 to 40 minutes.

  4. While the fish is marinating, preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

  5. When the fish has marinated, spoon the remaining chutney mixture into the cavities of the sea bass. Place the stuffed sea bass onto a sheet pan, and bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the flesh of each sea bass is opaque.

  6. To serve the dish, divide the stuffed sea bass among four serving plates. Spoon a portion of the new potatoes and green salad alongside. Garnish each plate with a wedge of lemon.
