Grilled Seam Bream

Grilled sea bream is a delicious and tender fish that is perfect for grilling. 


  • 4 whole sea bream fish (about 400-500 grams or 0.9-1.1 lbs each), scaled and gutted
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
  • Olive oil
  • Lemon wedges (for serving)
  • Fresh herbs (such as parsley or dill) for garnish


  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Make sure the grill grates are clean and lightly oiled to prevent the fish from sticking.
  2. Rinse the sea bream inside and out under cold water. Pat them dry with paper towels.
  3. Score the fish on both sides by making a few diagonal slashes about 1 inch apart. This will help the fish cook more evenly and allow flavors to penetrate.
  4. Season the fish generously with salt and pepper, both inside the cavity and on the skin.
  5. Drizzle a little olive oil over the fish and rub it in, ensuring all sides are coated.
  6. Place the sea bream directly on the grill grates. If you’re concerned about the fish sticking to the grill, you can place it on a well-oiled fish basket or wrap it in aluminum foil with some slits for ventilation.
  7. Grill the sea bream for approximately 4-6 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the fish. Flip it gently using a spatula or fish turner to avoid breaking the delicate flesh.
  8. Continue grilling until the flesh is opaque and easily flakes with a fork. The skin should be crispy and lightly charred.
  9. Once cooked, remove the sea bream from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes.
  10. Transfer the grilled sea bream to a serving platter and garnish with fresh herbs such as parsley or dill.
  11. Serve the sea bream immediately with lemon wedges on the side. The fish can be served whole, and each person can fillet their portion at the table.

Grilled sea bream pairs well with a variety of side dishes such as grilled vegetables, herbed rice, or a fresh green salad.
