Serves 4 / NUTRITIONAL INFO: 541 kcals, 45g fat (5.8g saturated), 30.3g protein, 3.2g carbs, 2.5g sugar
175ml quality extra virgin olive oil
2 x 500g sea bream, cleaned and scaled
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
1 small red chilli, finely chopped
20 ripe cherry tomatoes, quartered
1/2 bunch of fresh parsley leaves, roughly torn
To serve:a few slices quality bread (ciabatta)
Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy-based frying pan over a fairly high heat. Add the bream, followed by the sea salt, garlic, chilli and tomatoes. Pour in 400ml of cold water and add the parsley. Turn the heat down slightly and cook the bream for 7 minutes on each side. When you flip the bream over, you can see that it\'s cooked by checking that the eye has turned white and the flesh is tender. Season with salt and pepper.
Remove the bream from the pan and place on a large serving dish and pour the juice from the pan over the fish. Serve immediately, with lots of good bread to mop up the delicious sauce.
