"In Ancient Greece Sea Bream or “Orata”, "Dorada" (meaning “Golden” in Italian and Spanish due to the golden colors between the eyes) was devoted to Aphrodite, the goddess of beauty, as it was considered to be the most attractive and tastiest fish."
"The gilt-head bream is generally considered the best-tasting of the breams."
"Since antiquity it is considered to be one of the tastiest fish and a delectable dish."
