Whole Roasted Grouper

This dish was inspired  by this fun clip on how to roast a whole fish in The New York Times, its so simple and we now make it all the time.

Its easy to roast a whole fish while the fish may be expensive to buy we find we get at least two meals from it when combined with cous cous or quinoa and a salad.


  • one or two fish of choice, I think this was grouper or whole snapper works well
  • one lemon
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • a few springs of fresh basil
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • olive oil

  1. simply stuff the fish with garlic, lemon and basil, sprinkle with salt and olive oil
  2. bake at 400 for 15 minutes or until done
  3. gently remove fish from bones and add a little more fresh lemon juice, olive oil and salt to tasty 
  4. serve and enjoy 
you can get super creative with the fillings and flavors or enjoy the simple and delicious taste of the fish :-)

Have a great weekend everyone
