    Place butter in a small sauce pan over medium high heat. After the butter melts completely (watch close as this will happen quickly) it will begin to foam and the milk solids will begin to brown. After all foam subsides and butter looks golden brown remove from heat and squeeze in a bit of lemon juice to stop the browning process. Set aside.

    • As Needed lemon, juiced

    Lay out a piece of foil 3” (8cm) longer on each end than the fish. Drizzle the exterior and cavity of the fish with the brown butter and season with salt and chipotle powder. Stuff the cavity with remaining ingredients and fold foil into a packet.
