    • 1 large bunch fresh oregano
    • 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Directions

    1. Lightly coat grill or broiler pan with cooking spray; heat grill or broiler. Sprinkle exterior and cavity of each fish with 1/4 teaspoon salt, and season with pepper. Place two lemon rounds and a few oregano sprigs in cavity of each fish.

    Cook's Note

    We like the briny flavor that sea salt gives to this easy-to-prepare dish, but coarse salt works equally well.
