Simple Herb Baked Fish

When I'm in the mood for something healthy and light but super tasty, this herb baked fish wins every time. Buying a good quality fish is key so check out your local fish monger or go to the fish counter at your local supermarket rather than buying something pre-packaged. 

You can make this with pretty much any fish, but my favourite is sea bream or sea bass. They both have a lovely delicate flavour and remind me of being on holiday. The herbs add another dimension to the dish although I also love these fish baked simply with a little lemon juice and salt and pepper. 

Simple Herb Baked Fish

Serves 2



  • 2 fillets of sea bream or sea bass
  • Drizzle rapeseed oil
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 tbsp chopped herbs (choose your favourite, but I mostly use coriander and parsely)
  • Pinch of salt and pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 170 degrees fan
  • Pop the fish on a lined baking tray, skin side down
  • Drizzle over the oil and lemon juice, then sprinkle on the herbs
  • Pop the fish in the oven for 6-10 minutes depending on the size of the fillets
  • Serve it with Asian Style Roasted Veg, Sweet Potato Fries or salad of your choice

The simplicity and quick cooking of this dish makes it a regular in our house, so I hope you enjoy it too.
