Sometime I take dinner requests, and after the family brought home fish and requested repeatedly that I cook a couple of whole fish. I thought, why not? It’s easy, delicious, and makes for one hell of a presentation. Bon Appétit.

Place mixture into a mixing bowl with a capful of the following HerbnFarm NW seasonings: seatown smoke, herb and jerk, and fish market seasoning. Whisk mixture into pot with melted butter and stir until well blended to make marinade for fish. Make three –four diagonal cuts in each side of the fish, all the way right through the bone.
