Greek Baked Bonito With Herbs & Potatoes is inspired by a dish I ate in a taverna in Rhodes one evening. I was part of a group of 6 and the restaurant suggested that we share a whole fish between the table. I will never forget the simple yet exquisite flavors – a perfect mix of citrus lemon, pungent oregano and garlic baked inside the fish. Meals do not get much better than that one!

So here is the home version. I advise taking a whole bonito for this recipe. Clean out the fish and discard the head – you can ask them to do this at your fish store if you like. Insert garlic into the cavity. Place the fish in a baking dish surrounded by potatoes. Pour over a cooking liquid made with oil, lemon juice and water. Bake for 1 ½ hours before serving up this delicious dish to your guests!
