Serves: 3 servings
  • Sea bream / pink perch – 3, whole, scaled and gutted
  • Salt – 2 tsp
  • Black pepper – 2 tsp
  • Lemon – 1, sliced in roundels
  • Fresh rosemary leaves – ¼ cup
  • Onion – 1, large, cut into roundels of 1 cm thick
  • Potato – 1, large, cut into roundels of 1 cm thick
  • Fresh thyme – 6 to 8 sprigs
  • Tomato – 1, large
  • White wine – 100 ml (about ½ cup)
  • Olive oil – ⅓ cup + 3 tbsp
  • Star anise – 3
  • Fresh parsley to garnish
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C / 350 F and place the wire rack at the lower third level of the oven.
  2. Take the cleaned and gutted fish in a bowl and add 2 tablespoons of oil, 1 teaspoon each of salt & pepper and rub on both sides of the fish well.
  3. Take one slice of lemon and few fresh sprigs of rosemary and insert them into the cleaned gap of the fish. This will infuse the fish with fantastic flavors while baking. Let the fish marinade for about 30 minutes.
  4. Now take the slices of potato and onion in another bowl and season them with salt and pepper and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and fresh thyme. Give a good mix.
  5. Spread the onions and potatoes on a baking dish in a single layer. Lay few slices of lemon and few slices of tomato on top of the veggies.
  6. Place the marinated fish on top of the veggies. Then place 1 tomato slice on each fish and top it up with 1 star anise on each.
  7. Pour half a cup of white wine and ⅓ cup of olive oil over the fish and veggies.
  8. Bake the fish and veggies in the preheated oven for about 30-40 minutes or until the fishes are cooked through. You can check if the fish is done or not by poking it with a fork and it should be flaky.
  9. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley and serve your baked fish & veggies warm with some salads on the side. Enjoy!
