Baking Numerous Whole Fish Together

by D. Wyndon

I would like to serve up whole black bream for a dinner party of 10 people. My fishmonger often has them small enough to serve one per person. If I cook all ten in the oven at the same time (in two dishes wrapped in foil), they will need to be partly overlapping. Will I need to increase the cooking time, over that suggested for individual fish? Any idea how long that would be?

Not knowing how thick the black bream are, I would use the 10 minute per inch of thickness rule for cooking them. If possible try to overlap the fish at the thinner part of the fish, like the tail section.

Hope this helps you.

Thanks for visiting the cookingfishmonger.
