Notes

  • A great way to check if the fish is done is to check its temperature. Internal temperature should be 145°F when done.
  • Slice the lemon as thin as you can. too much lemon flavor will overpower the fish.
  • If you don’t have fresh garlic, you can use garlic powder. About 1 teaspoon per fish.
