The tangy zest of the grapefruit cuts the delicate flavour of the sea bass perfectly.

Serving suggestions

Serve hot with peas and peppers

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
