Recipe Sea Bass with oriental broth and Julienne of vegetables
Originally from England, Julie has spent the past 11 years running her own business in Perth, Western Australia, as that’s where she met her husband and business partner, Michael. Now, with their daughter, Kirsty, and son-in-law, Stephen, they have purchased the Art Deco bistro in Southend as they take on a new challenge. Kirk Willis is the new head chef, with a traditional, French-trained background which includes working for Gordon Ramsay. Here Kirk shares a simple supper recipe:

To make the broth, add 1 pint of water to a pan on a stove, add all the ingredients (star anise, garlic, ginger, fish sauce, red chilli and 2 tablespoons of caster sugar) and bring to the boil. Then simmer and season to taste. In a separate hot pan, add sesame oil to fry the Julienne of vegetables.
Strain the broth using a chinoise (conical sieve). Place the sea bass in the oven at 160-180 degrees for approximately five minutes depending on the size of the fillets.
Then place the Julienne of vegetables in the centre of a bowl. Add one ladle of broth over the vegetables, then place the sea bass on top, garnish with spring onion and coriander. Simple but effective supper.
