Easy whole fish recipes

Experience the joy of bringing whole cooked fish to the table – they’re easier to cook than you might think, and incredibly tasty when on the bone. They’re a great alternative for a dinner party, or instead of a Sunday roast, and many work well on the bbq.

Have a scroll through our hand-picked collection of sea bass, sea bream, salmon and more, and take a look at our page on how to cook a whole fish.
