The name bream covers one of the largest families of freshwater and seawater (marine) fish. This page deals with seawater species known generally as sea bream, gilt head or Dorade which belongs to the family Sparidae, found mainly in the Mediterranean Sea and sometimes in the English Channel.


Sea Bream is round bodied and classed as a "white" fish and grows to 60cm/2  feet in length.  It is generally considered one of the best-tasting of the breams and has a medium  sweet flavour with a medium texture similar to Sea Bass.  You can substitute any marine bass in recipes however care should be taken when using freshwater bass as they can have a "muddy" flavour.

Serving allowance of sea bream per person:  Allow 175g/6oz of sea bream fillet per person
