A delicious warmwater fish from the Mediterranean, the Gilt-head Bream, or Dorade Royale, is soft and flaky, with a rich flavor.


The most delicious of all the breams, the Gilt-head Bream is a round-ish in shape, and has a medium oil content. The flesh is soft, and produces small flakes that are rich and flavorful, with a mild sweet taste.


Very tender when cooked, the Gilt-head Bream is popular in Mediterranean cuisine. Try it in Italian, Greek, French, or even Moroccan dishes. Pair it with fresh herbs, vegetables, and quality olive oil to truly bring out its flavor.


“Gilt” means a gold leaf or gold paint applied thinly to a surface, and Dorade translates to “golden.” This name is no coincidence as the Gilt-head Bream (or the Dorade Royale) is a round warmwater fish that is silver in color, and has a very distinct gold marking between its eyes.
