Baked Sea Bass With Vegetables

"This recipe is based on one posted in Ozlem's Turkish Table. Sea bass is a favorite along the Aegean coast, but you could substitute any mild firm fish. Not only is this dish delicious, it is healthy and a simple one-dish meal."

Ready In:




  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Boil the potatoes for 10 minutes, then drain the water and leave to cool. Once it is cool enough to handle, cut potatoes in half and slice thinly.
  • While the potatoes are boiling, heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large, heavy pan. Stir in the chopped onions and cook until soft, for 3 -4 minutes. Add the chopped garlic and tomatoes and cook over medium low heat for 3 minutes. Pour in the water and lemon juice. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cook gently for another 2 minutes on low and heat and leave to cool.
  • Grease a baking dish with the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and place the fish fillets and potato slices in the dish, coat them with the olive oil. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Spread the tomato and onion mixture over the fish fillets and place the potato slices alongside the fish. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the oven for about 20 - 25 minutes.
  • Once cooked, take the foil off and sprinkle chopped parsley and red pepper flakes over the fish. Serve immediately with wedges of lemon by the side.

    Delicious way to cook fish. I love the flavor that the tomatoes, onion, lemon and garlic imparts (btw: I added extra garlic because I'm a garlic lover) and how it makes its own sauce. YUM Mediterranean style dish! I added the potatoes, but if watching carbs, they can just be left out with no flavor loss. I didn't realize that I was out of parsley so I subbed cilantro and it worked out beautifully. A wonderful and complete meal that will most definitely be made again. Thank you for sharing PanNan! Made it for CQ4, 2017 (Turkey).

    Excellent complete meal. We loved the bass with the tomato and onion mixture. Great technique and great flavor! The only tweak I made was to take the potatoes out and pan fry them a bit before serving. The whole dish was excellent. Thank you!
