Lemon Stuffed Broiled Branzino

The original recipe from Food & Wine magazine grill the Branzino, but I find it easier to broil in an oven.  In the summer, I will try this again with grill.  I also change the measurement for one Branzino instead of 4 from the original recipe.




  • 1-pound whole branzino—scaled and gutted
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 thyme sprigs
  • 1 bay leaves
  • 1 lemons—1/2 thinly sliced, 1/2 cut into wedges
  • 1/4 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoons of finely chopped parsley, for serving


  1. Season the fish cavities with salt and pepper. Stuff each cavity with a thyme sprig, a bay leaf and 2 lemon slices. Rub the outside of the branzino with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Broil the branzino in oven at 375 degree for 10 minute, then turning once, until browned and crisp , about 10-15 min or just cooked through.  Serve right away, passing salt, lemon wedges and parsley at the table.
