Delicious and light, Mediterranean Orata (Dorade in Water) is ever-present throughout the Mediterranean and known as daurade in France and dorada in Spain due to the golden color of its scales. Europeans have long prized orata for its flaky, white flesh which can be poached, grilled, or baked.
To make this delicacy, sustainably farmed orata is gently steamed, and hand-packed in cans with water, lemon, and salt. This recipe reflects the tradition of restaurants along the Amalfi coast which serve the fillets simply with salads, sliced tomatoes, potatoes, and a generous drizzle of flavorful extra virgin olive oil such as Titone.
Ingredients: Sea Bream* (Sparus aurata), Water, Salt.
IASA’s stuff is pretty good
The dorade was tender and I also liked their branzino
