Oven baked gilt-head bream with bell pepper and tomato // Dourada assada no forno com pimento e tomate


It's funny how your taste changes through time. One day you're all about that steak with mushroom sauce and a few years later you listen to yourself describing in great detail why you prefer to go out for a fish meal.


All this to say Yes, I'm in that stage now. Living in Portugal, and close to a notorious fishing area, certainly helps. But ah, gilt-head bream cooked in a salt crust... monkfish rice... or even the casual and relaxed grilled sardines... Yum!

Today I bring you a simple fish dish anyone can cook at home: an oven baked gilt-head bream with potatoes, bell peppers and tomato.


Ingredients:

2 gilt-head breams
2 onions (rings)
2 tomatoes (sliced)
1 green bell pepper (sliced)
6 potatoes (diced)
4 slices of lemon
4 garlic cloves
olive oil
1 tablespoon margarine
salt
black pepper



Slice the onions, the tomatoes, the bell pepper, the garlic cloves and the lemon. No seeds. 

Place 2 lemon slices inside each clean fish. Season both the inside and the outside of the fish with salt and pepper.

Dice the potatoes.

Pour enough olive oil into an oven-proof dish to cover the bottom. Spread the onions, the tomatoes, the bell pepper and the garlic. Place the fish over the bed of vegetables, and finally place the potatoes where there is room left. Season them with salt and pepper. Place the margarine over the fish.

Bake in the oven for about 75 minutes. Carefully turn the fish halfway through the cooking time.


Enjoy!
É engraçado como os vossos gostos mudam com o passar do tempo. Um dia o vosso mundo só gira à volta daquele bife com molho de cogumelos e alguns anos mais tarde ouvem-se a vocês próprios a descrever com grande detalhe por que é que preferem sair para comer peixe.

Tudo isto para dizer Sim, estou nessa fase agora. Viver em Portugal, e junto a uma reconhecida área piscatória, ajuda com certeza. Mas ah, dourada ao sal... arroz de tamboril... ou até mesmo as casuais e relaxadas sardinhas grelhadas... Yum!


Hoje trago-vos um prato de peixe simples que qualquer um pode cozinhar em casa: dourada assada no forno com batatas, pimento e tomate.


Ingredientes:

2 douradas
2 cebolas (anéis)
2 tomates (fatias)
1 pimento verde (fatias)
6 batatas (aos cubos)
4 rodelas de limão
4 dentes de alho
azeite
1 colher de sopa de margarina
sal
pimenta preta



Cortem às rodelas as cebolas, os tomates, o pimento, os dentes de alho e o limão. Sem sementes.

Coloquem 2 rodelas de limão em cada peixe limpo. Temperem tanto o interior como o exterior do peixe com sal e pimenta.

Cortem as batatas aos cubos.

Coloquem azeite suficiente numa travessa de ir ao forno para cobrir o fundo. Espalhem as cebolas, os tomates, o pimento e o alho. Coloquem o peixe por cima da cama de vegetais, e finalmente coloquem as batatas onde houver espaço. Temperem-nas com sal e pimenta. Coloquem a margarina por cima do peixe.

Cozinhem no forno durante cerca de 75 minutos. Virem o peixe cuidadosamente a meio do assado.


Bom apetite!
