This easy, melt in your mouth fish is baked on a bed of delicious olives, tomato and parsley. The lemon garlic potato bites are a perfect zesty moorish side. My family love this simple but flavoursome Mediterranean inspired dish.
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Serves: 4

4 medium potatoes, diced into bite sized pieces
2 bream
3 tbsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic, crushed
3 lemons
2 large tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup Kalamata olives, sliced
1 1/2 cups parsley, roughly cut
Salt and pepper
Garden salad, to serve

  • Preheat the oven to 220 degrees. Line two baking dishes with baking paper.
  • Simmer the potatoes on medium heat for 6-7 minutes until soft, drain and pat dry.
  • While the potatoes are simmering, place the tomatoes, olives, 1/2 cup of parsley, 2 slices of lemon in the baking dish. Season with salt and paper.

  • Carefully make 5-6 cuts into each side of the fish to the bone.
  • Insert 2-3 lemon slices and 1/8 cup parsley into each fish cavity. Place the fish onto the tomato and olive mixture.
  • Brush the fish with the remaining oil, rub garlic into the cuts, place slices of lemon on the top and season with cracked pepper.
  • Place the potatoes, zest and juice of 1 lemon, 1 clove of garlic, 1 tbsp oil, salt and pepper on a baking dish and toss to combine. Bake on the bottom wire rack in the oven.
  • Bake the fish for 20-25 minutes on a wire rack above the potatoes until the fish is cooked through.

  • Use a fork to lift the baked fish off the bone. Spoon the baked olives and tomatoes over the fish and sprinkle fresh parsley on top. Serve with a side of garden salad and roasted lemon garlic potato bites.

  • Tips
  • When cooked, the fish will be white and the pectoral fins will come off easily when gently pulled.
  • The fish can be pan fried instead of baked for a crispy finish for 3-4 minutes each side.
