Ingredients for 4 portions

  • 1 sea bream of 1 kg

  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 glass of white wine
  • 2 tablespoons of breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Salt, pepper and parsley

How to make the baked sea bream

  1. First of all clean the sea bream by removing any possible remains of viscera that may have been left inside, scraping well with a knife. Wash the lemons well and then cut them into thin slices.
  2. Peel the onions and then cut them in slices just like the lemons. The garlic cloves have to be peeled too and chopped very finely together with the parsley.
  3. Make three cuts in each fish back until you reach the central spine and spread with a good jet of olive oil, salt and pepper. Add the chopped garlic and parsley to all the fish. Also sprinkle some breadcrumbs on the outside so that the skin is very crispy.
  4. Insert the lemon slices into the different cuts along the loins. Finally, in a baking tray, arrange all the chopped onion with a little oil, some salt and the white wine. Place the fish on the onion and bake it all for 20 minutes at 180ºC. Serve straight away from the oven to the table!
