For lot of people, cooking ‘whole’ anything is something you imagine Julia Child doing, not something you see yourself attempting for tonight’s dinner. But wait! Don’t click past! Here’s a way to fool-proof your fish & impress your guests on a grand scale (pun intended!).
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 whole snappers (about 1 pound each), gutted
1 lemon, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons parsley
2 tablespoons fresh thyme sprigs
salt and pepper
Fill the cavity of each snapper with lemon sliced, parsley and thyme. Use string to secure the snapper filling inside. Drizzle half the olive oil into the cavity and season with salt and pepper.
Rub the outside of the snapper with remaining olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Arrange on a single layer on the grill and grill for 10 minutes per side until cooked through.
Remove fish from the grill and serve family style with favourite summer side dishes.
