Baking fish is hassle free compared to cooking fish and is quick and ideal when you don’t have much time to spare.

I have used fillets of sea bass with leeks, carrot, celery, tomato and red pepper.I also added jalapeno which lends a tart taste with a bit of hot kick.

If you don’t like vegetables, you can omit them or adapt to suit your taste buds. I prefer to add vegetables as you can turn this in to a one pot baked dish.The vegetables remain crisp and taste good with the fish.You can serve it with crusty bread to mop-up the gravy.
