A dish which I ate cooked to perfection in a private kitchen in Naples. Success depends on having in the first place a really fresh fish.


  • a sea bass of kg ( lb)
  • 1 clove</


Scale, wash and gut the fish. Put the chopped garlic and herbs and parsley into the gut cavity and the gills. Place the fish in a shallow oiled oven dish, salt it lightly, sprinkle it with the breadcrumbs and pour over it the olive oil into which you have previously beaten the lemon juice. Cook for 25 to 30 minutes in a preheated hot oven.
