Whole baked Snapper


1 large whole snapper

2 lemons

2 red chilli (long) (deseeded)

1 inch ginger (peeled)

3 cloves of garlic

Olive oil and butter

Salt & pepper

Vegetables of your choice for baking under the fish, I used sweet potato and chat potatoes, chop them smaller than I have, they probably needed another 5 minutes.

Cut 3 slits into the top of your fish.  Use a whole lemon in cavity of fish – poke that in.   slice up finely the garlic, ginger and chilli and push into slits of fish and the rest on the top of the fish, place your fish on top of the vegetables and pop some butter on top (and poke some in cavity) and splash on some olive oil, cover with foil tightly and bake in 180 degree oven for 45 minutes.  Take foil off for last 20 minutes to crisp up skin.

The fish I had was huge so I used the left overs in a fish pie.
