Oven Baked Sea Bream

Oven Baked Sea Bream cooked in foil, and so it is kind of steamed. This beautiful fish does not need much seasoning. I love being able to taste the ocean when eating fish – a good way of telling it is fresh! Sea Bream is quite a meaty fish –  tasty and very easy to handle. Filleting it when cooked is pretty easy as the bones are generally large and easy to spot. You get the best flavour if you cook fish with bones. We don’t seem to eat as much fish as we eat meat, probably because we don’t all know how to cook it. You will be surprised how easy and simple this is to cook. By the way, fish does not like lots of fussy flavourings – always keep it simple.

It has been known that fish gives you energy when you are weak or poorly –  it is packed with omega3. Fishermen say sea bream is the tastiest fish you can ge, whether it’s from thet lake or the river. Apparently they are very popular in Florida, so I was told.

They will burn a bit of a hole in your pocket, but they are worth it – better value if you get them when they are in season. I always try to eat fish in season because I know they are fresh and they don’t cost as much.

I do hope you will try to make this recipe, so let see how easy it is :
