Dorade with roasted vegetables – Simple and Easy!

Dorade with roasted vegetables is a simple, yet easy and quick way to serve dinner in a jiffy!

I have to admit that it was only up until a few months ago that I ate this fish for the first time. And like a fish on a rod, I have been hooked at the first bite. The fish has a very full taste and is very juicy. If you like fatty fish like me, then this is something worth trying.

Dorade, also known as sea bream goes by many different names. There are many ways to prepare it but I like to keep it simple when it comes to fish. Simply pop all the ingredients in a tray and bake it in the oven.

Every Friday we have a lovely market in my neighbourhood with fresh foods such as fish, meats, chicken and so much more. I can easily spend a few hours there, just passing time and spend unnecessary money! Getting fresh fish seemed to be a good enough reason for me to go shopping there.

I must have gotten lost in translation when the guy asked me in Dutch if he should clean the fish. Because when I got home, the fish was gutted and cleaned on the inside but no scaled. Guess there’s a first time for everything and with the help of good old YouTube, I scaled two fish.

Not exactly something I would do again. I had fish scales everywhere, including my hair. You live and you learn and at least I have learned a new Dutch word for scaling – “ontschubben”

Here’s an easy tutorial on how to scale fish. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PVKtayYE_Q

Serve this dorade with roasted vegetables with garlic bread, rice or fries. And feel free to play around with the veggies of your choice.
