We’ve seen several tea recipes among our Michelin-starred chefs that deploy tea as an ingredient in marinades, broths, and poaching liquids and it inspired us to try our own recipe using our fragrant and uplifting Earl Grey for something a little lighter at Christmas. It’s a versatile ingredient for Earl Grey Tea Recipes.
We recommend serving this dish on Christmas eve, ahead of the heavier festivities on Christmas day, with steamed green vegetables.
Earl Grey Tea Recipes: Baked Sea Bream
It’s also extremely easy to make freeing up more time for any last-minute wrapping or preparations. We might also recommend serving this cold as a Christmas morning breakfast with brown bread toast and butter, in place of smoked salmon. The delicate nature of the dish pairs incredibly well with a glass of sparkling wine.
Serves: 6 | Time: 40-mins
- 2 whole sea bream, filleted
- 1 lemon, cut into wedges
- 3 tbsp JING Earl Grey
- 300ml boiling water
Preheat oven to 180-degrees. Line baking tray with greaseproof paper. Place whole fish in tray. Scatter the earl grey tea evenly across the fish. Add wedges of lemon. Pour boiling water over the top, drizzle a little oil, season with salt and pepper. Cover with greaseproof paper and bake in the centre of the oven for 30-minutes. Remove from oven, leave to rest for five minutes before serving with steamed green vegetables and fresh lemon juice.
Earl Grey Black Tea
Our uplifting Earl Grey Tea is made from a base of rich and satisfying Sri Lankan black tea and fragranced with high quality bergamot oil. A sprinkle of bright blue cornflowers adds visual flair making this tea not only beautiful to drink but to use as an ingredient in savoury or sweet dishes. We’ve infused it with creams, custards, but it also works well as a pairing with rich, oily fish.
