6 servings (serving size: 1/2 fish and about 2 tablespoons sauce)

An Australian grill isn't complete without the essential whole fish, and a local-waters snapper is a common choice. A bright, fresh, anchovy-flecked sauce adorns the simply seasoned fish in this first course. If you can't find baby snapper, use one or two larger fish, and adjust the cook time accordingly; a 4-pound fish will take about 25 minutes to cook.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

Step 2

Score snapper by making 4 (1-inch) crosswise cuts on each side of skin with a sharp knife. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon pepper and salt evenly inside cavities; arrange lemon slices evenly in cavities. Wrap fish tightly in foil coated with cooking spray. Place fish on grill rack; grill 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, turning once. Let stand 5 minutes before unwrapping.

Step 3

Combine parsley and remaining ingredients in a food processor; process until finely chopped. Stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Serve sauce with fish.
