Recipe: Baked Sea Bream

Today we bring you a dish from the sea combined with the richness of the countryside, creating a harmony of flavors that encapsulates the essence of the Mediterranean diet: baked sea bream. This dish is not only a delight for the palate, but also a sample of healthy and simple cooking. The use of Spanish extra virgin olive oil in this recipe not only adds depth and character to the fish, but also brings out its juiciness and natural flavor. Here is a recipe that enhances the delicacy of sea bream with the nobility of extra virgin olive oil from Spain, guaranteeing a spectacular result.

How to make Baked Sea Bream step by step

  1. Pre-preparation: Pre-heat the oven to 390 °F (200 °C). If you decide to include potatoes, place them on a baking sheet and sprinkle 1 tablespoon of, extra virgin olive oil from Spain, salt, and pepper, and bake for about 20 minutes before adding the fish.
  2. Season the sea bream: Make diagonal cuts on both sides of the sea bream. This helps the heat to penetrate better and the flavors to infuse into the fish. Season the inside and outside of the sea bream with salt and pepper.
  3. Add aromatics: Stuff the cavity of each sea bream with lemon slices, sliced garlic, and rosemary. These ingredients not only aromatize the fish from the inside, but also contribute to its juiciness.
  4. Dress with extra virgin olive oil from Spain: Place the sea bream on a baking sheet (on top of the potatoes if you are using them) and drizzle with 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil from Spain. Be sure to coat the fish well to enhance the flavor.
  5. Baking: Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through and the skin is slightly crispy. The flesh should be white and juicy and should separate easily from the bone.

Once ready, squeeze the remaining lemon over the sea bream and garnish with chopped, fresh parsley. Serve immediately, enjoying the perfect combination of flavors.

This recipe for baked sea bream with Spanish extra virgin olive oil is a testament to the fact that the simplest dishes are often the most memorable. EVOO from Spain not only enhances the texture and flavor of the fish, but also provides its own health benefits, making this dish both delicious and nutritious.
