Dorade Royale

Other Common Names:

Frank Bruni wrote in the New York Times, “Dorade is a fish with an even greater number of identities. The name I just used for it is French, and arguably the most commonly used one. But in Italian restaurants, it’s presented as orata; in Spanish restaurants, as dorado. And it’s sometimes just called sea bream.”
