Roasting fish is super simple way to prepare an entire fish in one go.  Roast if you want to crispy well-coloured skin, or bake if you're wanting the fish to take on the flavours of the baking pan.

Make sure you brush the fish with a little olive oil before placing in the oven.  Other flavours that are delicious and can be added to the pan if you're baking would be...

  • Fennel
  • Herbs
  • Star Anise
  • Pernod

The Actual Cooking

Pre-heat your oven to 220 Celsius for roasting, 180 for baking.

The cooking will take between 20-30 minutes for a whole 1.3-2.2kg (3-5lb) fish.
