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.

Make the sauce before adding the herbs

Add 2/3 of herbs and stir to combine. Set the remaining 1/3 of herbs aside for serving.
Make 1 cm deep diagonal slices into the flesh, 3 cm apart, from the pectoral to the tail. Do not cut through to the bone. Repeat on the other side.

Place the fish on the lemon slices in the baking dish.
Rub 2/3 of the sauce and herb mixture evenly over the fish, pushing the mixture into the cuts.
Fill the fish cavity with the remaining mixture and add 3 - 4 slices of lemon.

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.
