Orange and radicchio
  • 1 orange, strained juice only
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

    Preheat oven to 200C. Heat olive oil in a large frying pan over high heat, fry bream fillets skin-side down until golden (2-3 minutes), turn and place on an oven tray and roast until cooked through (about 2-4 minutes), remove, cover with foil, and keep warm.

    Meanwhile, for orange and radicchio, combine orange juice, red wine vinegar and half the olive oil in a bowl. Heat remaining olive oil in a frying pan, add radicchio and cook until it starts to wilt (2-3 minutes). Add orange juice mixture, orange slices and olives, and cook until warmed through. Season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and serve immediately with fish.
