There is something special about sharing a whole snapper. It is delicious with a zesty sauce, fresh herbs and looks fantastic.

The sauce and herbs are rubbed into slits into the sides and the cavity of the fish. Sliced lemons add flavour and make it moist. This is great served with rice and salad or as part of a Thai banquet.

Tips
Substitute lemons with limes.
The chilli is balanced and gives enough spice for the size of the fish. Reduce or increase the number if desired.
The carcass makes a great broth.
