Try our traditional Basque Baked Sea Bream Recipe.
Besugo al Horno (Baked Sea Bream) is a classic sea bream recipe served during Christmas Eve in the Basque Country. Traditionally this Spanish fish recipe uses Royal Bream, considered to be the most expensive fish during the Christmas season in Spain. As this species is not widely available in the UK, I have used Sea Bream which will also work perfectly for this classic Basque recipe. It may not have the grandeur of a huge turkey-and-trimmings production, but the dry chilli and garlic flavoured oil baked into the thin sliced roasted potatoes, certainly beats it hands down on flavour.
