- 2–3 medium lemons, thinly sliced
- 2–3 sprigs of rosemary
- 2–3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
- 10–12 Kalamata olives
- 1½–2 pounds Red Snapper fillets (or white fish of your choice)*
- 1–2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- ½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Layer half of the lemon slices and half of the rosemary leaves on bottom of a rectangular baking dish. Scatter half of the olives and half of the garlic around the pan.
Season both sides of the fish with salt and pepper and lay (skin-side down, if applicable) on bed of lemons, rosemary, olives and garlic. Place remaining rosemary, garlic and olives on top of fish and top with remaining lemon slices. Drizzle with olive oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily (depending on thickness of fillets).
*This recipe also works well with boneless chicken breasts. Allow 40 to 45 minutes for 1 pound of chicken breasts.
