First of all, we will deal with cleaning the fish: gutting the insides, cutting off the fins and the tip of the tail. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry with napkins. Next, rub with salt and black pepper, including the inside. Place on a heat-resistant dish.
Wash and dry fresh mint sprigs. Tear off the leaves with your hands and chop not very finely. Put the chopped mint leaves in a deep bowl, put the grated lemon zest, 1 teaspoon of dry basil, add half the lemon juice and pour 2 tbsp. spoons and more vegetable oil. Mix thoroughly.
Make several long, but not too deep cuts along the surface of the fish. Rub in a layer, apply the prepared mixture of herbs, lemon and oil.
