Baked gilt-head bream (dorada al horno)

Easy dinner, you only need to control the timing. I love oven dinners for weekdays, because it allows me to do other things while the food is cooking.

This is a quite typical meal in many Spanish households, and a tasty and healthy dinner choice.

In this case I’ve accompanied with potatoes, baker’s potatoes or patatas panadera in Spanish, which is a side baked sliced potatoes with onions. It could also be changed for roasted veggies for a lower carb meal
