When Gilthead bream is in season


Gilthead bream gets its name from the distinctive gold or yellow spot located on its forehead, which sets it apart from other sea bream species. These fish have an elongated body with a silvery-grey or bluish-green coloration on their upper side, transitioning to a silvery-white belly.

Gilthead bream is celebrated for its delectable, white and flaky flesh, which has a mild, sweet flavour. This combination of taste and texture makes it a popular choice for a variety of dishes, whether grilled whole, filleted, baked, or steamed. The Mediterranean region, in particular, has a long history of incorporating gilthead bream into its traditional cuisine, with dishes such as “Dorada a la Sal” (salt-baked gilthead bream) being a well-known favourite.
