I like the recipe. I've done something similar, but with other fish. We will now try and bream. Bonnie easily you boned? The pictures look just cleared from the viscera, or maybe to me so it seems to me.

Milenka, I might baked whole - marinating it out half an hour, put spices in it and I did not notched. Peko it into a convection oven - before baking she covered outside with oil.

Milenka, can easily be boned. Besides bones of the chest, no more. By pressing on the spine of the entire skeleton is easily removed. However, small children should be triturated in fingers. Bonnie recipe I like and put her in favorites :)

Rally, thanks for the information! Unfortunately my bream will wait for as it is shameful today the fish auction in Varna were only two or three species of fish and it was not among them. I had no time to look elsewhere and therefore sea bream will become mackerel - I will make it with garlic butter in this recipe, but it will not be the same.

At the moment, bake ... Smells tempting :) I think it served with boiled potatoes and a salad of arugula and parmezzan. How will wee received, but there is simply no chance is not great :) :) :)

Bonnie, thank you for the great recipe! I was going to do photos, but would probably make me eat me if this late at night I had made him wait even just one minute :) bream appeal to everyone, melting in the mouth and had a very gentle taste!

Rally, I'm glad that you liked it :)
