Roasted Sea Bream with a Carmargue Rice and Bean Broth
Roasted Sea Bream with a Carmargue Rice and Bean Broth Roasted Sea Bream with a Carmargue Rice and Bean Broth

This broth is a meal in itself... made with roasted peppers, seasonal tomatoes, garlic, red carmargue rice and my favourite Greek Gigantes beans! The sea bream is, though, the perfect accompaniment, with its tender white flesh, roasted in lemon and garden herbs. A simply delicious, wholesome and healthy meal!

  1. Start with the rice, enough for one and a half portions (about 90g) and follow the instructions on the pack for cooking. You only need to par cook for half the time, as they will finish off cooking in the oven. Drain and rinse through
  2. Whilst the rice is cooking, prep the tomatoes, peppers and garlic and transfer into on oven proof dish. Season with the paprika, sea salt and black pepper and a good glug of olive oil. Stuff the fish with the herbs and a few of the lemon wedges, brush with olive oil and season well
  3. Finally, transfer the rice and beans in with the veggies, along with 250ml of vegetable stock. Stir in, pop the fish on top and roast in a hottish oven for 15/20 mins, until the fish has just cooked through

I'm Siân, a passionate foodie all my life... I started out working with hotels and restuarants in London, to get young people into the industry and develop their basic skills. Moves and changes over the years have taken me in broader directions, but with a different work/life balance now, I'm back to food... sharing easy, healthy meal ideas for you to experiment yourself with in the kitchen! There's lots of fish, beans and vegetables! Happy cooking!
