Roasting a whole fish is a simple way to make an impressive dinner that rings in spring perfectly. Make sure to have your fish monger clean and scale the fish to make your life a little easier. Beware when you’re eating, though, because there may be bones!

What You’ll Need:
Whole fish (snapper or sea bass are best)
Two lemons
Maple Syrup
Olive oil
Salt and Pepper

Preheat oven to to 425 degrees.
Place fish in pan with cover.
Coat in olive oil, salt and pepper.
Add a splash of maple syrup, and squeeze the juice of one lemon.
Slice lemon and garlic into thin rounds, place them inside of the fish cavity along with a few sprigs of thyme, a tablespoon of butter, and a tablespoon of capers.
Spoon the marinade from bottom of pan and coat fish.
Cover, and place in heated oven. Cook for 15 minutes, remove cover, and broil for 5 additional minutes, until skin is crispy.
Serve, and enjoy!
