Branzino is a mild white fish popular in Italian cuisine and usually roasted whole and served with lemon. Also called European bass, the fish has been showing up on menus around the country and world as chefs and diners enjoy branzino’s sweet, flaky meat.
Branzino is a white ocean fish that thrives in the Mediterranean Sea, Fisheries across its native region have taken to farm-raising branzino to help prevent overfishing.
Branzino has many names, from capemouth and sea perch to loup de mer and “king of the mullets,” though most of the time it’s called branzino or European sea bass. Outside its native Mediterranean Sea, branzino can be found in the eastern Atlantic Ocean from Norway to Senegal, as well as the Black Sea. Since it’s a migratory species, branzino travels south for the winter into warmer waters. This night-hunting fish grows up to three pounds, though most of the branzino you’ll see on the plate is closer to one or two pounds — making it a perfect dish for two.
