Whole Roasted Branzino with a Fresh Arugula Salad
Whole Roasted Branzino is one of my favorite meals – and super quick and easy to prepare too. Don’t be afraid of the whole fish – it won’t bite and is so delicious when done. I keep it simple – I only use olive oil, salt & pepper, fresh rosemary and lemon slices with my branzino. I serve it with some fresh arugula coated with lemon juice and a few cracks of fresh pepper and voilà! The perfect lunch or a light dinner.
