Easy Baked Whole Fish Recipes

Cooking whole fish can seem daunting but it’s actually a great and easy way to cook delicious and flavourful fish! Most of the time, whole fish is sold scaled, gutted and cleaned so it’s ready for you to cook (including ours!).

Sea Bream, Seabass and Rainbow Trout are particularly good when cooking whole fish recipes but feel free to substitute with what is available to you! Here are 3 recipes that are super easy but will impress your family and friends!

Whole Sea Bream En Papillote

baked whole sea bream

Cooking fish “en papillote” or simply in baking paper, is one of the easiest to cook fish while making sure the flavours infuse well and the fish doesn’t dry out. Directly serve sea bream in parcels to your guests for a maximum effect!

Whole Sea Bream En Papillote
 
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 4 whole sea bream, gutted and cleaned
  • 3 lemons, juiced
  • 1 small fennel bulb, finely sliced
  • 8 sprigs rosemary
  • 2 red chillies, seeded and finely sliced
  • 200 ml white wine
Instructions
  1. Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Tear 4 large sheets of baking paper and fold each in half – each piece should be big enough to fit a whole fish into. Season the sea bream inside and out with salt and pepper.

  2. Lay most of the lemons, slightly overlapping, inside the belly of each fish, followed by the fennel, a sprig of rosemary and the chilli. Put a few slices of lemon and a sprig of rosemary over the top of the fish, then tie in place with some butchers string and season again with salt and pepper.

  3. Put a fish in the centre of each piece of folded baking paper, then fold up the sides a little to catch the liquid. Divide the white wine and lemon juice over each fish, then scrunch the baking paper together to seal like a rough parcel. Put the parcels on a baking tray and bake for 18-20 minutes.

  4. Serve each guest a sealed parcel, allowing them to break open the paper themselves at the table, releasing the steam and cooking smells into the air.

Whole Baked Thai Seabass

Whole Baked Thai SeabassThai cuisine always brings lots of flavours to the table! This delicious seabass recipe is no exception and will make you feel like you are travelling, without leaving your kitchen!

Whole Baked Thai Seabass
 
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 4 whole seabass, about 300g each
  • 2 lemongrass stems, outer leaves removed
  • 5cm (2in) root ginger, peeled
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2 red chillies, washed
  • 1 bunch coriander, washed
  • 2 limes, juice
  • 20ml (4 tsp) honey
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) fish sauce
  • 60ml (4 tbsp) vegetable oil
  • spring onions, for garnishing
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 200C / fan 180C / gas mark 6.

  2. Wash the sea bass inside and out, and pat dry with kitchen paper.

  3. Score across the fish and through the skin 4-5 times on each side, then lay the fish on a large piece of oiled foil, big enough to wrap it up loosely. Do this for all four of them.

  4. Place the lemongrass, ginger, garlic, chillies, coriander stems, lime juice, honey, fish sauce and oil in a blender and give it a quick whizz until the mixture is roughly chopped.

  5. Use half of the mixture over the fish, making sure you push some into the cuts. Use the remainder of the mixture to fill the cavities of the fish.

  6. Pull the sides of the foil up to create a loose parcel. Crimp the edges to seal, making sure there is some space around the fish.

  7. Bake for 20 minutes or until the fish is cooked and flakes easily.

  8. Let it rest for about 5 minutes before opening the parcel. Before eating, be sure to drain the juices in a bowl to serve with the fish. Remove the mixture because it’s not edible because of the woodiness of the lemongrass. Serve immediately.
