I was in the fish-market when I sought those truly fresh fishes  (in the pictures) at a convenient price: immediately I bought! The bronze bream or  “pagello” is red fish with tasty flesh, I am going to show you one of the easiest way to cook it with few ingredients: this is really dietetic food but it taste so good!!!

You will obtain a “pasta” which you will use to“dress” the fishes.

Start putting some of this  “pasta” inside each fish belly.

…at 660 Fahrenheit (350 Celsius) for 25 minutes,

As you sniff a pleasant scent around….please check! if the fish results too dry spead some white wine on top and, if isn’t yet cooked, put it back in the oven .
