Grilled sea bream

I have to admit when with my parents, I usually eat more fish, more seafood in general, seems just like most of my friends don’t like it so I don’t tend to prepare it for myself when travelling with them. But after days of wishful thinking and longing for grilled fish I decided to make it. But first went to the beach for a swim.DSC_0328.JPG

Coming back from the beach I could see my friends starting the grill and the scent coming made me absolutely hungry. I insisted on grilling the fish even though they didn’t want any. In the end I was glad that I decided to make fish and didn’t feel any envy towards those who were enjoying steaks and burgers. It’s always good to have a diverse diet, and we should eat fish as much as we can.


Sea bream is a fish I prepare and eat very often. As a kid my parents took me to lots of seafood restaurants all over the coast, and not as many of other kids who were there with their parents, usually eating fries, I was eating grilled fish and boiled mangold with potatoes. My parents showed me from a young age that eating various dishes and having a diverse diet with lots of vegetables is very important and that’s why today I love trying out all kinds of cuisines and food from all over the world.


Try out my recipe, I can really say that it will take you right to this beautiful coastline I shared with you in my photos, you will feel the sun on your face and a fresh breeze coming from the sea. Share any comments on how it turned out and hope you’ll like it as much as I do.
