Cook the Rice

Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.

Pour the water for the rice (see pantry for amount) into a medium saucepan with a tight-fitting lid.

Stir in the rice and 1/4 tsp salt and bring to the boil. Once boiling, turn the heat down to medium and cover with the lid. 

Leave to cook for 10 mins, then remove the pan from the heat (still covered) and leave to the side for another 10 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).

Marinate the Fish

While the rice cooks, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

Pop the sea bass into a medium bowl with the olive oil for the marinade (see pantry for amount) and the curry powder mix. 

Season with salt and pepper, then mix well to coat the fish. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw fish.

Time to Bake

Lay the sea bass, skin-side down, onto a lined baking tray.

Bake the fish on the top shelf of your oven until cooked through, 10-15 mins. IMPORTANT: The fish is cooked when opaque in the middle.

Spice Time

Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium heat.

Once hot, add the garlic, tomato puree and tikka masala paste. Stir-fry for 1 min, until fragrant.

Make the Curry Sauce

Stir the creme fraiche, sugar and water for the sauce (see pantry for both amounts), into the spices. Simmer until thickened, 5-6 mins.

Add the spinach to the sauce a handful at a time until wilted and piping hot, 1-2 mins.

Taste and season with salt and pepper, then remove from the heat. Add a splash of water if the sauce is a little thick.


When everything's ready, fluff up the rice with a fork, then share between your bowls.

Spoon over the curry sauce and top with the fish.
