Mediterranean herbs sea bream

When buying some rosemary, you will probably think of using it in roasted meat recipes, but fish could be another excellent pairing, especially Mediterranean fish like sea bream, sea bass or mackerel. To recreate a marine atmosphere, cook your fish wrapped in foil, together with sage and lemon.

Servings: 4

Cooking time: 25 minutes (+ time needed for cleaning fish)


4 sea breams fillets
4 slices lemon
handful of cherry tomatoes
4 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp rosemary powder
1 tsp sage leaf powder
1 tsp garlic powder



  1. Rinse the sea bream fillets;
  2. Sprinkle the pepper and half the rosemary and sage powders onto the meaty side;;
  3. Pour some olive oil on top of each fillets;
  4. Turn over the fillets and sprinkle the skin with the salt and some olive oil, to help crisp the skin;
  5. Add the tomatoes and cook the fillets fully wrapped in foil for 15 mins at 180°C;
  6. Unwrap the foil and continue to bake at 200°C for 5 minutes or until the skin is crispy;
  7. Remove from the oven, serve with the oily rosemary juices over the sea bream, and add the remaining herb powders for that extra zesty flavour.
