Branzino is the one of the most wonderful fishes available. You can often find it as a special in many restaurants. Normally comes whole from the grill. Randomly on a Monday night I was craving a good meal so I ran to market and got two beautiful Branzino’s and came up with a quick recipe for a very special weeknight meal.
2 Whole Branzino Fish that have been de-scaled, insides removed and rinsed well.
1 Bunch Parsley
2 Tbs Olive Oil
Start by using a knife and making sure the fish is sliced well inside. You may need to cut a little deeper in the tail and head. Then sliced onion and lemon into rounds. On a large foiled and oiled baking sheet lay down all the onion pieces and hand full of parsley. Take each fish and oil the outside well. Then sprinkle with salt and pepper all over. Place the fish on top of the parsley and onions. Inside each fish gently lay 2 lemon round and a few springs of parsley. Bake at 425 degrees of 30 minutes. Then place under broiler for a few minutes to make the skin nice and crispy. Serve the fish whole with a side of steamed veggies.
