Nutritional values

The Mediterranean fish scores with its abundant protein and low-fat meat. This is why olives and pickled tomatoes are completely unproblematic here, especially as the oil fruits still have unsaturated fatty acids.

Since sea bream live in the sea, their iodine content is also quite considerable - good for the thyroid gland, which needs the trace element for hormone production.
