Dorade, a rather small fish with shimmering silver skin, is a Mediterranean favorite. Similar to pompano or red snapper, it has a delicately mild, unassuming flavor with a meaty texture. Also known as the sea bream outside the United States, the dorade fish is often found in the Mediterranean but can be caught in the Atlantic and in the Pacific, between New Zealand and Australia
Our dorade is from the northern Mediterranean Sea.
The dorade is a pretty fish. Well, at least the Ancient Greeks thought so. They actually devoted it to Aphrodite, the goddess of beauty.
Seafood lovers buy sea bream for its succulent but delicate texture, making it easy to roast, bake, grill, stew, or sauté with mild herbs and sauces. It is also, many would say, an essential ingredient in Provence's classic bouillabaisse.
Dorade is an elegant fish, but it’s also a great source of protein, iron, calcium, and vitamin C.
