I have had this article posted by "ravenous couple" from a magazine for a few years now and had posted it on another site- but did not know how to post the photos at the time so now I have this for you to try. Too cute!
Fish is commonly served with a wedge of lemon... but why just a wedge??Who's to say we can't be more creative?The next time you serve fish or just want a fum garnish for a party platter, try this cute and simple garnish.

Prep:

10 Min

Ingredients

1 large
lemon
1
sharp paring knife
1
exacto knife or zestor with a large cutting end

Directions Step-By-Step

1
First cut a large wedge shape piece off one end of the lemon for the mouth.
Then cut about a 1/4 inch slice off the base to use as the fins.
Trim this base piece and cut little wedges in the fin and slice a small thin wedge on top of the fish and squeeze it in.
2
Use the trimmed pieces from the fin to insert on the sides of the fish for the side gills.
Carve out some eyes with a zestor or an exacto knife(or draw some on with a sharpee).
Carve a lip with the zester, angling it to use only one edge.
