Jamie Hyder - Whole Roasted Fish with Roasted Tomatoes

Whole Roasted Fish with Roasted Tomatoes

I love cooking whole fish, especially for a group of friends or family. It’s simple and cost effective, yet looks impressive and is delicious! You can make this with most flaky, whitefish such as snapper, sea bass or branzino, and feel free to switch up the herbs. Remember to always look for clear eyes, bright gills and a fresh smell when selecting fish. Ask your fishmonger to scale and clean the fish. And don’t be scared to dig into the head bits – it’s got all the tasty parts!
