    Enjoy your wood-fired whole red snapper with garlic, parsley, lemon, and fish spice

    As an authority on wood-fired cooking, I am pleased to offer my take on this delicious recipe for wood-fired whole red snapper with garlic, parsley, lemon, and my special fish spice. With the perfect blend of seasonings, smoky flavor, and tender, flaky fish, this dish is sure to impress your guests and satisfy your taste buds.

    To start, prepare your wood-fired oven by preheating it to 550°F and adding some wood chips for smoking, if desired. Take care not to let the fire get too hot, as this could cause the fish to cook too quickly and become tough.

    In a small bowl, mix together minced garlic, chopped parsley, and fish spice (or a mixture of your favorite herbs and spices). Make several diagonal slits on each side of the red snapper with a sharp knife, and rub the garlic and herb mixture into the slits and inside the fish cavity.

    Next, lay lemon slices inside the cavity and on top of the fish, and brush the outside of the fish with olive oil. Place the red snapper on a sheet of aluminum foil or in a cast iron skillet, and put it in the wood-fired oven.

    Cook the red snapper for approximately 20 minutes covered and an additional to 10 minutes uncovered or until the internal temperature of the fish reaches 145°F. You can use a meat thermometer to check the temperature. When the fish is cooked through, carefully remove it from the wood-fired oven and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.

    To serve, garnish the red snapper with additional fresh parsley and lemon slices, if desired. The combination of garlic, parsley, lemon, and smoky wood-fired flavor creates a delicious, perfectly balanced dish that is sure to become a new favorite in your cooking repertoire. Enjoy!
