How To Make fish with a twist- lemon garnish
1First 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.
2Use 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.
