  6. Slice ½ a lemon into thin wedges and stuff them into the incisions on the top of the fish. Squeeze the juice of the remaining ½ of the lemon over the fish. 
  7. Sprinkle 2 tbsp of Black Mamba Sliced Pickled Jalapeños over the fish and some red chilli flakes. 
  8. Place the fish into the oven to cook for 25 minutes.
