Pat Duran


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.

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.
