Ingredients

  • 8 oz Whole fish (trout, orata, branzini)
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 4 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • salt (optional)
  • freshly ground black pepper (optional)

Directions

Preheat broiler. Open fish like a book; season to taste with salt and pepper if desired. Arrange garlic, rosemary, and lemon slices on one side of each fish; close other side and transfer fish to greased rack of broiler pan. Broil 5 to 6 inches from heat source 5 minutes. Turn fish over; continue to broil 4 to 5 minutes, or until fish is opaque throughout.

(An alternative for those who like fast and easy: Fish can be cooked in a sort of double boiler in the microwave by filling a Pyrex bowl with water and placing the fish in a smaller microwave-safe bowl inside it.)
