Sea Bass Parcels That Are On The Table In Under 25 Minutes

This is a perfect fish to cook when you're short on time, as it only requires a handful of ingredients (many of which you'll likely already have in the cupboard) and the Asian-style vegetables just need to be roughly chopped. Sea bass has a lovely, sweet flavour and flaky texture and Asda's Extra Special fillets already have their bones removed so you can enjoy easily. Get the sea bass parcels recipe here.

Lobster & Prawn Thermidor To Wow Friends

The sweet succulence of lobster works well with the king prawns and a glorious tangy sauce in this classic dish, topped with a Parmesan crumb. Made with whole frozen lobster, friends will love this impressive dish. Get the lobster & prawn thermidor recipe here

A modern twist on classic fish and chips

You might have heard of beer-battered fish and chips, but celebrity chef James Martin takes this favourite dish up a notch by adding a dash of gin and tonic to his fish and chips recipe. James swears that his secret ingredients produce a crisper and lighter fish - have a go and see for yourself!
