Sea Bream Flavor
If you are a fan of sea bass, you should be a fan of the sea bream as well. It has a very clean and fresh flavor, that can handle a variety of different cooking methods. A lot of the time, for example, cod’s fried for fish and chips. I don’t know too many people that eat cod off of the barbecue. Now with sea bream, it takes many forms. It’s a diverse fish.

Sea Bream Properties
Sea bream (gilt-head fish) are popular in Italian dishes and that is probably because you can find them in the Mediterranean sea. Among other places. Sea bream has many minerals and vitamins that we might not get through all our daily foods. It carries over 30% of our RDV (recommended daily value) of selenium, phosphorus, niacin (B3), vitamin B12 and vitamin B6. Selenium helps promote a healthy immune system. Phosphorus maintains the chemical balance in our bodies and cells. Niacin provides energy to our cells to fight any cancer. Vitamin B12 protects against heart issues and cancer (and many people are deficient in this vitamin as well). Lastly, vitamin B6 is essential for our immune system.

There are a few options when working with this recipe. Depending on if you prefer a tangy, oily sauce, or creamy sauce, it will dictate how you approach the next part of the dish.
If you are a fan of ranch dressing, then that would be a great sauce option! To make a homemade version, all you need is:
- ground parsley
- ground chives
- garlic powder
- onion powder
- ground dill
- sea salt
- mayo or Greek yogurt
You have yourself a creamy homemade ranch. With fewer calories than the store-bought, sauce and more delicious!
If you are wanting a tangy oil to drizzle over the grilled sea bream, I recommend you mix fresh lemon juice with olive oil. It is delicious and great for you!
If a sauce isn’t your thing, consider only seasoning your fish with herbs and let the flavor of the fish speak for itself.
