Baking fish is super easy and requires literally no active time. I got a couple yellowtail snapper from Kensington market. Have the fishmonger clean it for you (descale and gut it). When you’re ready to cook it, sprinkle liberally on the outside and inside with salt and pepper, and rub some oil on there (I used olive oil here, just make sure the oil you use doesn’t have a smoke point lower than 400 degrees). I also added some “Bangkok Blend” spice that I got from The Spice Trader on Queen west that is quite nice. Just preheat your oven to 400 degrees, wrap the fish in foil and throw it in there for 40 minutes, depending on your oven. That’s it.
I like to finish with some lime juice and more salt before eating. The meat should just flake off, and chopsticks are best to use I think, but you can also use a fork.
