Grilled Sea Bass with Ginger and Spring Onions

Chef Wittaya Tongsodsaen at Toshi, Grand Millennium Dubai is famed for his Asian fusion cuisine. A Thai native, who has travelled the world and incorporated flavours from Brunei, Poland and Switzerland into his cooking, reveals his recipe for a fool-proof fish dish

“One of the essentials of Thai culture is making the culinary experience an enjoyable one. We are big believers of invigorating the tastebuds with simple aromatic blends that take very little time and effort. This dish is a true reflection of how a main ingredient shines for itself when just a touch of spice is added to enhance its natural flavour”

300g fresh sea bass
Salt and pepper, to taste
