Woman's Weekly recipe Sea bass is a delicious white fish that's packed with nutrients and flavour. This recipe for Spanish-style sea bass jazzes up the plain fillet with summery flavours like chorizo, garlic and fennel, for a dinner dish that feels like a special treat, but only takes 25 minutes from start to finish.


  • 60g chorizo, cut into chunks
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2tsp fennel seeds, optional
  • 1 small courgette, trimmed and cut into short sticks
  • About 50g ready-chopped kale
  • 125g butter beans, rinsed and drained
  • 5 peppadew peppers
  • 2tsp tomato ketchup, optional
  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • 1 sea-bass fillet
  • Lemon wedge

Use cherry tomatoes instead of the peppadews and fresh spinach instead of kale, if you prefer.


  1. Heat a frying pan, add the chorizo and fry for a couple of mins until it releases its oil. Add the garlic and fennel seeds, then the courgette sticks and kale and stir-fry for 52mins.
  2. Add the butter beans, peppers, ketchup, if using, and 1-2tbsp water and simmer for 1 min until the liquid is absorbed. Tip out on to a warm plate, keep it warm in the oven.
  3. Rub a little oil over the sea bass and season it well. Heat the pan and, when hot, sear the fish, skin-side down, for a few mins. When the skin is crisp, flip the fillet over and cook for 1-2 mins. Put on top of the veg, drizzle with the rest of the oil and add a lemon wedge.
