Olive Oil for the Crumb
Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
Chop the potatoes lengthways into 1cm slices, then chop into 1cm wide chips (no need to peel).
Pop the chips onto a large baking tray. Drizzle with oil, sprinkle over the smoked paprika, season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.
When the oven is hot, bake on the middle shelf until golden, 30-35 mins. Turn halfway through.
Meanwhile, pop half the garlic (unpeeled) into a small piece of foil with a drizzle of oil and scrunch to enclose it.
Trim the green beans. Zest and cut the lemon into wedges.
In a small bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, dried oregano, lemon zest and olive oil for the crumb (see pantry for amount). Season with salt and pepper.
Pat the sea bass dry with kitchen paper. Lay the sea bass, skin-side down, onto a lined large baking tray. Season with salt and pepper. Spread half the mayonnaise over the top of the fish and top with the zesty breadcrumb mixture. Press it down with a spoon.
Pop the garlic parcel on the same tray.
When turning the chips halfway through, bake the garlic and sea bass on the top shelf until the crumbs are golden and the fish is cooked through, 10-15 mins.
IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw fish. The fish is cooked when opaque in the middle.
Meanwhile, peel and grate the remaining garlic (or use a garlic press).
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the green beans and stir-fry until starting to char, 2-3 mins. Stir in the garlic, then turn the heat down to medium and cook for 1 min. Add a splash of water and immediately cover with a lid or some foil.
Cook until the beans are tender, 4-5 mins. Season with salt and pepper. Remove the pan from the heat. Cover to keep warm.
Once the garlic has roasted and cooled, cut the end with scissors, squeeze it out of the skin and mash with a fork.
In a small bowl combine the remaining mayonnaise, roasted garlic and a squeeze of lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.
Share the sea bass, paprika chips and green beans between your plates.
Serve the lemon aioli and remaining lemon wedges alongside for dipping and squeezing over.
