When we consider how many fish species are endangered and should, therefore be taken off the shopping list then Bream could be looked upon as something of a saviour. I say this because it is certainly one of the best ‘underrated’ fish with a wonderful, delicate flavour.
Gilt Head Bream
There are many types of Bream found in the Atlantic, the Mediterranean, the English Channel and the Bay of Biscay. Sea Bream is also known as Gilt Head Bream and Daurade whilst the Americans refer to it as Red Porgy.
Very common on menus across France and Portugal it is easily dealt with; washed and scaled the fillets are easily removed prior to cooking if serving fish on the bone isn’t your thing.
