Oven Roasted Cilantro- Chili -Lemon Branzino!

Branzino is a variety of sea bass. It is flaky, tender, silver-skinned fish, and it is light and buttery with a mildly sweet fish. The mildness helps spread the ingredients that we mix with it. I wanted to keep it simple to enhance the freshness of this delicate fish. I cooked it in high heat to give it a nice crispy skin, allowing it to stay moist inside the bone.


1 good size Branzino

1 Lemon

1 bunch Cilantro

3 Chilies

1 tablespoon oil or butter

Salt and Pepper

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

  • Grind the Cilantro and chillis together and make a paste.

  • Mix the lemon juice with it.

  • Clean the fish and slit the tummy and take out everything.

  • Rub the branzino with olive oil or butter and season with salt and pepper outside and inside.

  • Then rub the cilantro chili lemon juice paste on the fish generously.

  • Place the fish on a tray and put it in the oven.

  • Let it cook for 20 mins, or the skin is brown and crispy.

  • Gently flip the fish over with a spatula and continue cooking in the oven for about 15 more minutes, or the skin is crisp.

  • Remove fish to a serving plate and rest for a few minutes before serving.

  • Spread more cilantro and chili paste on top and slices of lemon over the fish.

  • Enjoy!
