serves two

1 (2.5 pound) whole red snapper, scaled, gutted and fins removed
salt and freshly ground black pepper
handful of mixed herbs, parsley and thyme are delicious
1 lemon, thinly sliced
6-8 slices good bacon
lemon wedges for serving

Turn the grill on high. Check that the fish has been scaled fully, and remove any stray scales. Salt and pepper the inside cavity of the fish and fill with herbs and lemon slices. Salt and pepper the outside of the fish and then wrap in bacon, overlapping each slice with other slices (to ensure that everything stays put). Grill 7 minutes on each side, or until the fish is opaque and tender and the bacon is crisp and beginning to blacken. Fillet and serve with lemon wedges.
