Gilt Head Bream are also known as Dorade or Royal Bream, they are farmed in the Mediterranean, so they are available all year round and hold a steady price.
Gilt Head Bream has a mild and sweet flavour with a medium to soft flesh texture producing small flakes of fish and are a great alternative to Sea Bass..
Supplied fresh, you can freeze these Gilt Head Bream at home.
The smaller fish are perfect for serving whole or a butterfly fillet and the larger fish filleted as one fillet will be a substantial main course and the skin on cooking crisps up beautifully.
