Baked sea bream

Delicate and light, baked sea bream with tomatoes, courgettes, red pepper, chopped parsley and potatoes with a splash of white wine. This recipe is inspired by a traditional Spanish recipe “Besugo al horno”, which was slightly modified. The fish can be baked whole or you can remove heads and tails, as we did. It’s one of of those very easy and very quick dishes. Serve decorated with slices of lemon. Enjoy!

Recipe tip

Fish needs to be fried in butter. Don’t substitute it with oil, as it will loose delicate, buttery taste.
