This garlic infused fish recipe is best created with white fish – I use sea bass.
Albanian Fish (Peshk) recipes are popular especially in towns near the sea and lakes. All around Shkoder lake we have lots of fish restaurants with fresh lake fish being served in a variety of ways. When we cook at home we buy the fish freshly caught, larger fish is sliced into chunks and cooked with vegetables, whereas smaller fish is cooked in fish marinades and served whole.
Sea bass is one of my favourite fish, it can be cooked so many ways but the I believe the best way is always in the oven!
Tip: There are a lot of Albanian fish recipes that involve garlic, I have found investing in a garlic infused olive oil has brought out the flavor well in this fish marinade.
Take the fish out of the fridge, rinse with cold water before cooking.
Take 2 sheets of foil the length of the fish plus 4 inches extra each end and lay them out on a flat surface.
Make the Marinade
In a bowl, mix the olive oil, garlic, lemon juice pepper, salt and parsley together and brush over the middle of the foil where the fish will sit.
Prepare the Fish
Place one fish on each foil in the middle and brush the mix over the top and inside.
Bring the two long edges up to join and fold together, bring the edge up and scrunch together so the seal is tight but forming a lose dome around each fish.
Place in a baking dish and into the oven at 180 degrees for 45 minutes.
Switch the oven off but leave the fish inside to continue to steam in the foil dome for another 20 minutes.
Serve the sea bass in the foil with side salads and breads.
