Portly Cooks | Sea Bream with Blue Cheese Linguine

BR6 with Blue Cheese Linguine

Sea Bream is a fabulous fish and versatile too, it will go with most things you are planning to make. I tried a new way (for me) of cooking it too.

  • 1 Sea Bream Fillet
  • 75g Linguine
  • 50g Stilton
  • 25ml Single Cream
  • Black Pepper

Boil the kettle and heat a saucepan. Add the water to the pan along with a generous pinch of salt. Add the linguine to the water and cook until al dente. Now for the fish…

Normally I would get my pan screaming hot and hold the fish down to ensure it had a crispy skin. This time though, I added a little oil to a cold pan along with the bream, skin side down. I let the pan heat up with the fish in it and the results were perfect.

Once it’s cooking nicely wait until the colour of the flesh begins to change and then flip and finish the fish off. As the fish cooks heat the cream and then crumble in the stilton. Melt the cheese off the heat, this will stop the sauce from having that weird grainy texture.

Remove the fish from the pan to rest and in the same pan add the cooked linguine followed by the cheese sauce. Make sure it is coated nicely then plate up with the fish on top.
