Bream is a fish that goes well with stronger flavours, for this recipe we used Gilthead bream fillets which, when coupled with garlic butter work very well indeed. We tried this recipe in a local Spanish restaurant, cooked to perfection and a very tasty dish served up with fresh boiled potatoes, roasted butternut squash and green beans.
