Dorade in Orangen-Knoblauch-Sauce / Dorade with orange and garlic sauce

Dorade with oranges and garlic

September 19th, 2018 | main dishes

A dream of a fish! Roasted as a whole in the oven, this sea bream bathes in orange and lemon flavors, fine fennel is reminiscent of the last Mediterranean holiday…

Dorade is ideal for grilling or baking in the oven. As Dorade royale, Dorade rosé or gilthead they are displayed at the fishmonger. We especially loved this dish with citrus fruits and a lot of garlic – and it’s also very easy. So: definitely recommended for imitation!

Dorade with oranges and garlic

1 Dorade rosé (1,200 – 1,500 g)

Really wild wild herbs salad

What they sell on the domestic German markets as “wild asparagus” botanically is no asparagus. Of course wild asparagus exists, and I know it from my time in northern Spain, where we collected the wild asparagus in nature. Here in Germany, however, the flower sprouts of the Pyrenean Star of Bethlehem are offered under this term, mostly grown in France. And it is really delicious. Raw or steamed, it tastes very intense. For a wild herb salad a “snappy” enrichment.
