Sea bream is one of the most popular fish in Greece. Sea breams are very tasty fish, with firm white flesh and not too many bones. There are many ways to cook the sea bream, but grilling with a plain lemon-oil sauce brings out the subtle flavor and the aroma of the sea.
Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 15 mins
1Heat the olive oil gently in a pan with the garlic and chilli until the garlic is soft. Squeeze in a little lemon juice. Lay the sea bream on a foil-lined baking sheet and make slashes down each side of the body about 1cm deep. Pour over a little of the garlic sauce and season.
2Heat the grill to very hot. Grill the fish for 8-10 minutes, turning once, until the skin is lightly charred and the flesh is just starting to turn opaque.
3Meanwhile reheat the sauce gently, taking care not to burn the garlic. Serve the fish with the remaining sizzling sauce and scattered with parsley.
