Grilled Sea Bream with Puy Lentils and Red Wine Grilled Sea Bream with Puy Lentils and Red Wine

This is a Rick Stein inspired dish that I've simplified... to make as a quick and easy every day meal. You wouldn't ordinarily think of red wine with fish, but it works remarkably well in this rich sauce and compliments the succulent white flesh of the sea bream perfectly.

  1. Start with the puy lentils and follow the instructions on the pack for quantites and cooking times
  2. Whilst the lentils are cooking, make the red wine sauce with the wine, stock, sugar, vinegar and a pinch of salt... all in a pan together. Bring to the boil and boil until the sauce has reduced down by at least a half and has thickened a little. Check the seasoning and keep warm
  3. Finally, brush the sea bream with olive oil and pop under the grill on a well greased surface (skin side up). Sprinkle with sea salt and grill until the skin is nicely browned. Strain the lentils and serve on the plate with the fish on top and the sauce poured over it. Finish with the sprig of dill

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!
