Cook Time: 30 minutes Difficulty: 1 out of 5 Serve: 2
1 sea bream
1⁄2 lb potatoes
1/2 lemon, sliced
1 sprig of fresh rosemary
Preheat oven to 430 F. Wash, peel the potatoes and slice them about 1/4 inch thick. Drizzle potatoes with olive oil. Put the sliced potatoes on an oven-proofed dish, so that later the fish could be placed on them. Season with salt and pepper.
Put it in the oven and bake potatoes covered with aluminium foil for 15-20 minutes.
Meanwhile prepare and clean fish. Sprinkle some salt into stomach cavity. Put two slices of lemon, a few slices of garlic and one sprig rosmary into cavity. Drizzle on both sides with a little olive oil.
After 15-20 minutes take potatoes out of the oven and place fish on them. Sprinkle with some salt and put back in the oven for 25 minutes or until fish is done. Serve hot with few slices of lemon.
If the fish gets to dry while baking, brush with a little of olive oil.
