Red porgy in the oven

No Comments » Sep 11th, 2010 | By | Category: Fish, Recipes

Red porgy or Φαγρί can be found quite often here in Greece. Most of the fish is farmed but fishermen also sell it off the boat on the islands. This one was a bait too big for the oven, so it had to be cut.

Preparation time: 10 minutes

cooking time: 40 minutes

difficulty: easy


  • 1 red porgy
  • 2 red onions
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 tomatoes
  • some olive oil
  • salt and pepper


Have your fish dealer clean the fish for you. Wash it and dry it with some kitchen paper.

Cut the onions into rings and lay them out on a baking tray. Cut the peppers in stripes and add them to the onions. Drizzle some oil over the vegetables.

Season the fish with salt and pepper. Place it on the onions. Slice the tomatoes and lay them on top of the fish. cover the tray with a foil and let it bake in the oven for 40 minutes at 200 degrees centigrade.

After 30 minutes remove the foil and let it bake for another 10 minutes. Be careful not to burn the tomatoes.

I serve the fish with rice.
