Step 1
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).
Step 2
Give the Whole Sea Bass (1 lb) two cuts on the belly. Drizzle half the Olive Oil (1 Tbsp) in your roasting dish, place a layer of the Fennel Bulb (1) and rest the fish on top of it.
Step 3
Open the cavity of the fish and add Salt (1/4 tsp) and Freshly Ground Black Pepper (as needed) . Then add the Fresh Ginger (3/4 piece) and white parts of the Scallions (2) . Place some Cherry Tomatoes (to taste) inside fish and finally, tuck in the Red Bird's Eye Chili Pepper (1) for a little kick and some Lemon (1/2) for a citrus punch.
Step 4
All you have to do next is put the Fresh Ginger (1/4 piece) , Lemon (1/2) and Cherry Tomatoes (to taste) on the top and sides of the fish. Drizzle the remaining Olive Oil (1 Tbsp) and go in with the rest of the Salt (1/2 tsp) and Freshly Ground Black Pepper (as needed) . Drizzle on the Light Soy Sauce (1 Tbsp) over the fish as well. Then place on the middle rack of the oven uncovered for 25-30 minutes, depending on the size of your fish.
Step 5
By roasting uncovered we’ll char the tomatoes so they’ll burst with sweetness. After about 25 minutes, crank the heat to “broil”, about 525 degrees F (275 degrees C) for about 5 minutes to give everything a lovely color. Serve hot and enjoy!
