Sea Bream and Wedges
Earlier in the year we went to Portugal with some friends for a week long holiday and whilst we were away we enjoyed a beautiful lunch of golden bream. See the restaurant we visited, Praia Do Lourenço.
The Portuguese cook a lot of fish, obviously having such a long coastline, they have lots of access to wonderful fish and sea food. After tasting this dish, I can see why it’s a staple in their diets.
We enjoyed this dish so much, that we have re-created it a number of times at home and it’s a really quick dish to prepare and cook. Here’s my version.
I’ve used sea bream instead of golden bream, as I haven’t get been able to get the same fish in the UK, but the sea bream is a lovely fish and is wonderful in this dish.
450 g potatoes
2 sea bream fillets
3 tbsps olive oil
2 tsps paprika
Handful of lettuce
A few cherry tomatoes
Preheat oven to 220 degrees.
Scrub the potatoes, but leave the skins on and intact.
Dry thoroughly with kitchen roll.
Slice into wedge shapes and add into a roasting tin.
Drizzle over 2 tbsps olive oil and muddle the potatoes around to coat.
Roast the potatoes for 30 – 40 minutes until they are brown and crispy.
Disturb them a couple of times during roasting and baste them with the oil.
About 10 minutes before the potatoes are ready, heat the remaining olive oil in a pan.
Cook the sea bream for about 3 – 4 minutes on each side. A little longer on the bottom if you like a crispy skin.
When the potatoes are about 5 minutes away from being done. Sprinkle over the paprika.
Squeeze the lemon over the fish just before serving.
Serve the sea bream and wedges with a side salad. I like to keep it simple with lettuce and tomatoes, but you could add in red onion and olives as well.
Now closed – congratulations go to our winner, Corrine from Gateshead.
