Your Defeat Tastes Delicious

Tonight we had our second round of Mr. Lawyer's striped bass. All during dinner he kept muttering things like "this is what you get for fighting so hard" and "your defeat tastes delicious." It was amazing but I might love the cajun seasoning on the grill version better (that's just because I like it spicy!). This recipe had a lighter, lemony taste and the thyme really shined through. I did have some extra thyme branches that I just threw on top while it roasted, it smelled divine!
Herb and Lemon Roasted Striped Bass
