For the vegetables

  • 2 green plantains halfway cooked
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • 2 large shallots sliced
  • 2 handful cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup lima beans frozen, then thawed
  • ½ tsp Noubess Original Hot and Spicy Sauce
  • 2 tsp fennel seeds
  • ½ cup white wine or vodka
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • Salt to taste

For the Fish

  • 1 tsp Noubess Original Hot and Spicy Sauce
  • 2 tbsp Green Seasoning Blend or Haitian Epis
  • 2 sea bass medium size, gutted, scaled and fins clipped (you can ask your fishmonger to do this) and thoroughly cleaned with lemon
  • Oiled roasting pan


  • Put the plantains in a pan of cold, salted water if preferred. Bring to a simmer and bubble for 7 mins, or until halfway tender. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Drain the plantains and set them aside.
  • Heat up a pan, add 1 tablespoon oil, garlic, shallots and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add tomatoes and beans, let cook for 1-2 minutes. Add hot sauce and mix well. Add fennel seed and mix well. Pour wine or vodka into the mixture and sprinkle lemon zest. Season with salt. Mix all to combine and let cook for 2 - 4 minutes on low heat.

To prepare the fish for roasting:

  • In a small bowl, add the remaining oil, green seasoning (seasoning blend) and hot sauce and mix well. Make a couple of cuts or slashes on the side of each fish. Rub the mixture into the flesh and cavity of the fish.
  • Assemble the dish: Scatter the vegetable mixture onto a prepared roasting pan. Place the fish on top of the vegetables and roast for 40 - 45 minutes or until the fish is completely cooked. (the flesh should pull away from the bones easily when gently pushed with a knife). Let cool for 3 - 5 minutes before serving.
  • Serve alone or with another side of vegetables or salad preferably.
