Whole Roast Bream with Lemon | Recipe Box


Here in Cyprus fresh fish can be found everywhere. I purchased these two breams from the market and I asked the guys there to clean it for me! I am gonna be honest here… cleaning fish is not something I have ever done, nor I ever intend to do! :p

This recipe is my favouriteee because it makes for the best lemony fish.


2 sea breams

1 lemon, peeled and cut into slices

2 Tbsp olive oil

1 tsp soumac

1 tsp oregano

salt and pepper, to taste


1. Prepare, aluminium foil and parchment paper “beds” for the fish and place the fish on it. *** Wear gloves when touching the fish

2. Season the fish with salt and pepper. ** Do not forget to season the cavity of the fish, as well.

3. In the belly cavity, lay half of the lemon slices, season with 1/4 tsp soumac and  1/4 tsp oregano. Sprinkle the other 1/4 tsp soumac and 1/4 tsp oregano  on top of the fish.


4. Before wrapping the fish, drizzle with a 1 tablespoon olive oil.16652031_10212344815565610_1613378618_n

5. Repeat the process with the second fish.

6. Wrap the fish by pinching the edges of the foil.


7. Bake at 185 °for about 40 and then open the foil and let the fish brown for about 10 min.

You can serve the fish with rice or baked potatoes.

Serves 3-4
