    170g Cooked Rice

    2 Leeks

    1 tsp Butter

    90g Pancetta

    100g Chesnut Mushrooms

    Sea Salt

    Freshly Ground Black Pepper

    Parsley - as much as desired

    Sage - as much as desired

    Extra Virgin Olive Oil

    Method

    Slice open the fish and drizzle with olive oil and season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.

    Melt the butter in a large pan on a medium heat. Chop the leeks and mushrooms, and lightly fry until tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.

    Chop the Pancetta. Combine the cooked leeks and mushrooms in a large mixing bowl with the rice and the pancetta. Stir until mixed thoroughly.

    Stuff the opened sea bass with the mixture keeping any remaining mixture to one side.

    Lightly oil the BBQ grill rack and add the stuffed fish. Turning frequently, until cooked thoroughly. Approximate cooking time is 20 minutes.

    Alternatively, wrap in foil and bake in the pre-heated oven at 220oC/Fan 200oC/Gas mark 7 for 25-30 minutes. The fish is cooked thoroughly when reached 72oC and the flesh flakes easily with fork.

    Serve on top of the remaining leek and mushroom mixture.

    These are guidelines only, as cooking appliances vary.

    Garnish with parsley and sage as desired.
