    eddy-turn,
    Here's one from Max's babe that is pretty good.

    ***************************************
    Roasted Red Snapper with Rosemary
    Ingredients
    4 Tbs olive oil
    1 whole (3-pound) red snapper, cleaned, scaled
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1 lemon, halved
    1/2 small onion, chopped
    1/2 small fennel bulb, chopped
    2 sprigs fresh rosemary
    1 Tbs chopped fennel fronds
    1 tsp chopped fresh rosemary leaves
    1 small garlic clove, minced
    Procedure
    1 Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
    2 Line a heavy large baking sheet with foil.
    3 Oil the foil and fish with 1 tablespoon of oil. Place the fish atop the foil.
    4 Sprinkle the fish cavity with salt and pepper. Squeeze 1/2 of the lemon inside the fish cavity.
    Fill the cavity with the onion, fennel and rosemary sprigs.
    5 Bake until the fish is just cooked through at the bone, about 40 minutes.[p]Sauce
    1 Meanwhile, squeeze the remaining lemon 1/2 into a small bowl.
    2 Whisk in the fennel fronds, rosemary, and garlic. Gradually whisk in the remaining 3 tablespoons of
    oil. Season the lemon sauce, to taste, with salt and pepper.[p]Serving
    1 Using a sharp knife, separate the 2 fillets from the backbone.
    2 Using a metal spatula, transfer the top fillets to a plate.
    3 Lift the fish backbone from the bottom fillets (the backbone and head should come off together easily),
    and discard. Using the spatula, transfer the remaining fillets to plates.
    4 Sprinkle the fish with salt and pepper. Drizzle the lemon sauce over the fish and serve.[p]Servings: 4
    Cooking time: 40 minutes

    eddy-turn,
    If you use a clean, oiled grate, just put it directly on the grate. That's what I do with most fish. Now that I have a LR fish spatula, life is good.
