Baked seabass

Baked seabass with aubergine, spring onion and coconut
You probably feel that rice is the thing to go with this, but in Jamaica we'd serve it with something crunchy, like crackers. Serves 4.

2 x 500g seabass, or other similar fish - gutted, scaled and gills removed
8 tbsp sunflower or groundnut oil
2 aubergines - tops removed and sliced
4 spring onions - 2 trimmed, 2 chopped
8 tbsp coconut cream

for the spice paste:

1 tbsp all-purpose seasoning
1 tbsp mild curry powder
1½ tbsp thyme leaves
1 tbsp tomato purée
juice of ½ a lime
salt and pepper

Make the spice paste by mixing all the ingredients together.

Make 3 or 4 neat slashes on each side of both fish, cutting into them but not down as far as the bones. Rub the paste all over the fish, pushing it down into the slashes, and rubbing all over the insides too. Put them in a large dish, cover with clingfilm and put in the fridge for a couple of hours.

Preheat the oven to 190C/gas mark 5. Heat 5 tbsp of the oil in a frying pan and colour the aubergines (you'll need to do this in batches) until pale gold on both sides. You don't need to cook them right through, just get some colour on them. Season well and lay on the base of a roasting tin or ovenproof dish big enough for both fish.

Heat the rest of the oil in a frying pan and cook the fish on both sides, just to colour them a little, about 2½ minutes each side. They should be golden. Set the fish on top of the aubergines in the roasting tin and scatter the spring onions over the top. Now spoon the coconut cream all over the fish and aubergines. Cook in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, until the fish is soft, tender and cooked through. Serve straight away.

That works really well with mackerel as well. Cut through the oiliness of the fish.
