Whole Roasted Trout with Thyme and Lemon
Ingredients:
1 whole trout - 1-2 pounds
A bunch of fresh thyme
Salt and pepper
1 lemon
2 bay leaves
Olive oil
To Make:
Scale the fish or have the fish monger do it for you. 
Take half of the thyme leaves off the stalks and mix with 2 tablespoons of salt and 1 tablespoon of pepper in a mortar and pestle. Grind it together. 
Use the thyme and salt mix to rub all over the fish on the outside and inside. You want the outside to be more salted so the skin absorbs the flavors. 
Stuff the rest of the thyme that you didn’t grind up inside the fish, with the stalks sticking up and out. 
Cut the lemon in half and cut slits into the middles. Insert 1 bay leaf in each lemon half and arrange in the corners of the baking tray. 
Rub the fish down all over with olive oil and place in the middle of the baking tray. 
Bake at 375 for 15-20 mins until the fish is flaky and cooked through. 
Squeeze the juice of the lemon halves over the fish and serve. 
Enjoy!
This recipe is really easy and really impressive. Not to mention, absolutely delicious!
