  • 2 medium size sea bream (gutted and cleaned)

  1. Make 2 - 3 diagonal cut in the skin of the sea breams. Both sides.
  2. Season the fish with salt and lime juice. Make sure that the fish is seasoned inside and out.
  3. Coat with flour.
  4. In a big pan with enough oil to cover at least half of the fish fry the sea bream for about 6- 8 minutes per side. Flip carefully and when it’s golden with some brown spots take it out of the pan to a plate with absorbent paper.
