Sea bream crudo
- July 2023
- Serves 2
- Hands-on time 15 min
Crudo is a popular way of serving the freshest fish from Italy’s Mediterranean waters. We’ve been inspired by the flavours of the southern Italian coast – orange, pistachios and chilli – which not only taste fantastic but look stunning too.

- 24g (4.4g saturated)
- 7.6g (7.3g sugars)
- 2 sea bream fillets, skinned
- 1 small orange
- ½ tsp white wine vinegar
- 1 tbsp shelled pistachios, chopped
- 4 anchovy-stuffed olives, sliced into rings
- 12 small mint leaves
- Sea salt flakes
- Extra-virgin olive oil to drizzle
- Finely slice the fish and lay out neatly over two serving plates.
- Top and tail the orange, then use a sharp knife to cut away the skin and white pith, following the shape of the fruit. Cut out each segment, holding the orange over a bowl, then put the segments in the bowl.
- Pour the white wine vinegar over the segments, then arrange them on top of the fish and drizzle a little of the liquid over too. Scatter over the pistachios, olive slices and mint leaves, then finish with a sprinkle of sea salt flakes and a good drizzle of oil.
The fish is eaten raw, so it’s essential to use the freshest, best quality fish you can get from the fishmonger (by law it needs to have been frozen first) in this recipe.
