- 2 garlic cloves
- 1/2 ginger root

Preheat oven to 400.
Blend the bell pepper, habanero and onions.
Add the ginger, garlic and herbs (thyme, dill, sage or any herbs of choice) and blend.
Add salt and stir.
Clean the fish using lemon to reduce fishy smell.
Make shallow slices on the fish, about 3 - 4 on both sides.
Scoop about half of the pureed mixture into these holes and in the center slit.
Keep the other half to use later.
Completely wrap the fish in foil and place in bottom rack of oven for 45 mins.
Optional: Add ¼ cup of olive oil to a pan on medium heat, then add the pureed mix and stir for 5mins.
Open the foil at the top and leave the fish in for another 5 minutes.
Bring out the fish from the oven and garnish with the sauce or drizzle with olive oil if you don’t want to use the sauce.
