Chloe's Fish with Eyes

I love to eat fish with eyes. My papa’s friend David told me that some people love to eat the eyes, except I don’t. But I love the fish. Here’s how we make it.


  • Fish, cleaned and butterflied (1 fish per 2 people)
  • Olive oil
  • Lemon
  • Fennel (optional)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • Fish holders (you don’t have to use them but they do it good)


  1. Sprinkle the inside of the fish with olive oil, salt and pepper. Sometimes we add fennel too.
  2. Wipe some more oil on the skin to keep the fish from sticking.
  3. Place fish in holders, if you have them.
  4. Grill over high heat for just a few minutes on each side until the fish is ready.
  5. Squeeze lemon over top and serve

What you should know

I get to put the salt and oil on, but I not allowed to do the grill. When I am older I can do that.

I like the picture of your fish. I won’t eat the eyes either. What’s the porpoise in that?
