For the salad:

  • 400 g Jersey Royals, halved if large
  • 2 bulbs fennel, finely sliced
  • 75 g pitted green olives, roughly chopped
  • 4 spring onions, trimmed and finely sliced
  • 1 tbsp snipped fresh chives
  • a squeeze of fresh orange
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil

For the fish:

  • 4 whole sea bass, weighing 300g each
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 1 lemon, peel left on and sliced
  • 2 oranges, peel left on and sliced
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme


  1. 1

    Cook the potatoes in a pan of boiling water for about 12-15 minutes until tender, drain and allow to cool a little. Place in a bowl and combine with the fennel, olives, spring onions and chives. Add the orange juice and olive oil, and season with freshly ground black pepper. Set aside.

  2. 2

    Spark up the barbecue. Slash the sea bass on both sides and season with freshly ground black pepper. Rub each fillet with some oil. Place a bay leaf and some lemon slices in the cavities of each. When the barbecue coals are ready, carefully arrange a row of orange slices on the grill and top with a sprig of thyme. Lay a fish on top, and then top with some more orange slices. Repeat with the remaining fish. 

  3. 3

    Cook the fish for about 6 minutes and then turn and cook for another 6 minutes until cooked through. To serve, carefully lift the fish onto serving plates and serve with some of the potato salad.
