Whole Roasted Sea Bream

I'm a huge believer in leaving the fish whole, as it should be, unfussy, letting the fish speak for itself

This recipe I'm sharing with you is a brilliant way to cook whole sea bream, you can use sea bass or snapper if you wish, speak to your fishmonger, he'll be happy to advise you


  1. 4 whole sea bream about 600-800g each, cleaned and scaled

  2. 2 each of red, yellow and green peppers

  3. 2-4 red chillies depending on how spicy you are feeling

  4. About 1/4 pint of olive oil

  5. A good splash of light soy sauce

  6. 3 limes


  1. Place the peppers onto a baking sheet and place in an oven on its hottest setting, when the skin becomes blackened and blistered, cover with cling film

  2. Once the peppers are cool enough to handle, remove the charred skin, seeds, and stalks

  3. Finely chop the chillies

  4. Season the fish really well, in a large frying pan heat a good splash of oil and add the chopped chillies, once warm carefully add the sea bream

  5. Cook for 4 minutes and then turn and cook for 4 minutes

  6. Remove the fish onto a baking sheet and place in a hot oven 180c for 10 minutes

  7. Slice the peppers and add them to the chilli oil and fish pan, add a good splash of soy sauce, lime juice and season to taste

Remove the fish from the oven and place onto warm plates

Spoon some of the pepper mix over the fish and serve
