1 T olive oil
1/2 t salt
1/4 t ground pepper
2 lemons

Rinse fish and pat dry with paper towels. Remove heads if desired. Rub both sides of fish lightly with olive oil. Sprinkle flesh with salt and pepper and set aside.

Rub fish cavity with herb blend. Tuck lemon slices and herb sprgs evenly into center cavity of each fish. Squeeze one of the lemon wedges over the fish.
