  3. Season the inside of the fish with salt and pepper, and stuff the inside with sprigs of fresh

    fragrances) and half a lemon (squeeze some of the juice out into the fish and then stuff the squeezed half in as well)

  4. Place the fish in an ovenproof dish with the cherry tomatoes, thin slices of

    potato and spring onions around the fish.

  5. Season the fish and vegetables salt, pepper, olive oil and a big splash of white wine.

  6. Place in oven and cook for 30-40 minutes until the fish is cooked through.
