Chermoula fish

Flavour sea bream or bass with a quick homemade chermoula tonight. Wrapping fish in baking paper is a great hack for anxious fish cooks, as it guarantees the fish cooks well and stays moist

  • Serves: 4 persons



  1. Step 1

    Use a food processor to blend together all the chermoula ingredients to form a smooth sauce. Season and set aside.
  2. Step 2

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4 and put a baking tray in the oven to heat up. Cut four large sheets of baking paper and fold each in half – each should be big enough to fit a whole fish. Season the fish and put one in each parcel with a lemon slice and a bay leaf. Spoon over 1 tbsp of chermoula per fish. Fold up the sides of the parcels to seal. Space the parcels on the baking tray in a single layer and bake for 18-20 minutes or until cooked through.
  3. Step 3

    Put a parcel on each plate and let your guests unwrap their portion at the table. Serve with the remaining chermoula for everyone to help themselves.
