Oreos have few or no bones, rounded fillets and a light, delicate flavour. They are a durable fish that holds together well under most cooking methods. Although Oreos are much like Dory and can be cooked in a similar way, their skin is usually very tough and must be removed.When choosing a wine to accompany Oreo, seasonings play a large part in deciding what wine to choose. With seasonings consisting simply of rice and dried aromatic herbs, choose lighter-bodied wines such as sauvignon blanc, Semillon or a blend of the two. With more strongly flavoured seasonings, select dry wines made from Chardonnay or Chardonnay blends.
