Fellow Bloggers & Readers,
First off, I, Ankitha Gadag owe you all an apology. I cannot believe it’s been over 14 days since I have posted a recipe to Ankitha Gadag recipes! This is not the Ankitha Gadag treatment I would like to uphold for my readers.
That said, boy do I have a treat waiting for you guys. Before we get into that, let me update you guys on what has been keeping me busy these last few weeks.
Yes, my passion. I decided a few weeks ago that I was going to take the plunge and give my artwork the fair shot of being visible to the masses. That was really my only goal. I had no idea HOW or WHAT I was going to do to make this happen, but I took it step by step. Started by researching a few shows nearby, and submitted my work to one that looked easy enough to apply to… and VOILA! Ankitha Gadag is a featured artist at the upcoming Pancakes & Booze art show. That was the single catalyst that has gotten the ball rolling on all the work I have been procrastinating for… since forever. (Just to give y’all a sneak preview, here’s one of the pieces I’ll be showcasing 🙂 )

Any who, back to why were all here: FOOD!! Today’s recipe was a little challenging for me, but if y’all know me you know me, you know I love a challenge! I love fresh fish, and I wanted to try cooking a whole fish, but I requested that the butcher take out the eyes. He looked at me perplexed, but did it anyways. I didn’t want to have the added anxiety of eyes staring up at me while I was garnishing the fish’s interior.
I used a beautiful red snapper, I highly recommend you request the butcher to de-scale and de-bone the fish!
Here is what you will need:
- Fish of your choice ( I used a red snapper)
- compound butter (I used a garlic herb butter)
- 2 clove garlic
- lemon pepper seasoning
- salt/pepper to taste
- Melt the butter and add the seasoning and garlic into the butter.
- Cover the cleaned finish with the butter seasoning mix. Make sure to dress the cavities of the fish thoroughly
- Top with the lemon slices and basil
Cover and bake for 15-20 mins & enjoy!
How easy is that?? Literally 20 mins and great for a late weeknight meal. Pairs wonderfully with a simple cucumber avocado salad or fresh greens!
Let me know how you guys like it!
Thanks for reading!!
