Mise en place

  • Pre-heat the oven to 190° C (375° F - gas 5).
  • Mix the garlic, salt, spices and oil in a small bowl.
  • Cut slashes in the fish and rub the mixture into the fish, pressing well into the slashes.
  • Lay the fish on a plate and marinate for 1 hour.


  1. Arrange the celery in a single layer in a greased baking dish.
  2. Place the fish on the celery.
  3. Cover with the tomatoes, lemon juice and parsley.
  4. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove foil and bake for a further 15 minutes.

Serving suggestions

Serve with salad and/or pickles.

We had this with pitta breads and the delicious Oyi namulh (Korean cucumber salad). The dish has quite a lot of liquid, which we discarded, a unusual dish, but very tasty.
