Daniel Gritzer Post a comment

Grilling may be one of my favorite ways to cook a whole fish—the intense direct heat does wonders for the skin, crisping it up while the coals below impart a delicious flavor to the fish itself. Granted, it's not quite as easy as just tossing a whole fish in the oven, but a few key steps will guarantee it comes out perfect every time. More

Whole Roasted Fish With Oregano, Parsley, and Lemon

Daniel Gritzer 5 comments

Whole roasted fish is one of the easiest, most delicious ways to cook fish. Cooked on the bone and in its skin, the meat remains even more tender and juicy than fillets or steaks do. Here, we soak the fish briefly in a salt-water brine to wash and lightly season it, then stuff the cavity with aromatic herbs, garlic, ginger, and lemon. Feel free to use any other fresh herbs and other aromatics you want. More
