Beautiful, citrusy grilled fish. All the flavors are just meant to be together. It’s easy to make, looks impressive and it’s very delicious. I use golden pompano, but you can substitute with any other your favorite fish. Do not skip grilled lemons. After you grill them they release sweetened caramelized juice and ads wonderful flavor to this dish.
