Lay out egg yolks, oil, garlic cloves, juice and zest of the organic lime, and the algae spice mixture so that the aioli ingredients are at room temperature when required later. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C CircoTherm® (190°C fan-assisted). Wash the fish and pat it dry
