Branzino is a saltwater fish that falls under the bass category. Branzino is a European sea bass usually found on the southern and western coasts of Europe. This fish has long been a staple in traditional Italian cuisine and now has become very popular all around the world. It can also be found off the north African coast.
This fish has a mild-flavored, delicate meat that melts in the mouth when cooked. The branzino is rich in omega-3, protein as well as the antioxidant selenium. Selenium is a particularly important factor in the functioning of the immune system as it helps lower oxidative stress in the body to reduce inflammation and increase immune strength.
Buying a fresh whole branzino is a great idea if you want to use different parts of the fish to maximize its meat content. Alternatively, if you want to try something exciting, serving a branzino whole fish on your table makes quite an elegant show-stopping centerpiece! With this dish, you can go with the branzino kosher-style recipe and stuff the whole branzino with citrus fruits to balance the sweetness of the fish!
