  4. Wash your fish in cold water, taking care not to injure the flesh. Pat dry with thick paper towel. With a sharp knife, cut 1.5-2 inch width portions. Make small slits on the side of the fish. Slice garlic into slivers, and press into these slits. Coat with olive oil. Sprinkle with rosemary, kosher salt and cayenne.
