  • Whole baby snapper, cleaned and scaled, around 2 kgs
  • Fresh oregano
  • Fresh thyme
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • Splash of white wine
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


Step 1
Lay the snapper on a double layer of good quality aluminium foil. Make sure there is enough foil all around the edges to fold to create a parcel later.

Step 2
Stuff the cavity with the lemon slices, and sprigs of oregano and thyme. Then splash some white wine all over the fish, and season generously with salt and pepper.

Step 3
Wrap the aluminium foil around the fish, making sure the parcel is completely sealed.

Cook for approximately 45 minutes.
