  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Mix together parsley, olive oil, basil, rosemary, and garlic. Split mixture in half. Spread half evenly on the inside of each fish. Top with lemon slices (about 2 to 3 per fish). Place fish onto a large plate and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
  3. Step 3

    Preheat the grill for medium heat. Once it comes up to temperature and you are ready to place fish onto the grill, oil the grill grates. Make about 3 passes across the grill to create a nonstick surface.
  4. Step 4

    Carefully place fish onto the grill grate and cook for 4 to 5 minutes on each side. Make sure to watch for burning. Using a large heat-resistant spatula , gently work fish away from the grate and turn. Cook for an additional 4 to 6 minutes or until internal temperature reaches at least 145 F.
  5. Step 5

    Once fish has cooked, remove from heat and place onto a large cutting board. Remove lemon slices from the center and squeeze a little fresh lemon juice over fresh flesh (this step is optional).
