Branzino Mediterranean

Branzino Mediterranean

Christala

"This simple, healthy, and delicious Mediterranean fish, also known as 'Greek Sea Bass', should be cooked whole. The cavity of the fish can be stuffed with lemon and other ingredients for added flavor. It is a very mild-tasting and versatile fish. The oregano and lemon make it truly Greek cuisine that many will enjoy. Can be found wild-caught in many stores. Enjoy!"

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil into a large baking pan; add onion and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Place the 2 cleaned fish into the baking pan and stuff each cavity with 1 lemon wedge, 1 rosemary sprig, and some of the red onion. Pour white wine and lemon juice over each fish and sprinkle with oregano. Drizzle the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil over the 2 fish.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork, about 25 minutes. Gently slide a spatula between the bones to separate fish; remove all the bones. Serve fish on a platter and garnish with parsley and lemon wedges.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • If desired, red pepper flakes sprinkled on top of fish impart a little zip to the flavor during the cooking process.
  • Other vegetables such as celery, pepper, or tomatoes can also be added to the pan and/or to the fish cavity.
  • You can also try grilling it and flipping it over once.

Thank you for the recipe! Made it just like you describe... well almost. I 'zested' up some of the lemon and mixed it with the onion that I put into the cavity. Other than that... Bottom line...

25 minutes are definitely not enough. I suggest a higher temperature or longer cooking time. The cooked parts of the fish were delicious. I'll make it again at 400F.

I couldn't belive how easy this was to make and how good it came out. Delicious, just like I've had in restaurants.

I have never liked fish. The last time I ate fish was back in the 80s. I came across the recipe and decided to make it for my husband who loves any kind of fish any way it's cooked. He talked me...

Easy to do and had a nice flavor. I'd make it again. I would add a little touch of honey to it so that the coloring comes out like the picture.

Delicious! The fish was so moist and delicious!

I had never heard of Branzino before and did not think the local store would carry it, but to my surprise they had it and it was on sale! We followed your directions to the letter and this made ...

Wonderful recipe! The rosemary and oregano are a nice subtle touch on the delicate lemon juice flavoring with the Bronzino.
