Lemon Garlic Monkfish

2 lemons
2 cloves garlic
2 lbs. monkfish (aka "poor man's lobster")
2 tablespoons oilive oil
Cayenne pepper
salt & pepper

Peel the grayish membrane from the monkfish and place in baking dish. Squeeze the juice from one lemon and set aside. Slice the other lemon into thin slices. Cut garlic into thin slivers. Make small slices in the fish, and stuff with the garlic slices. Sprinkle with half of the lemon juice, cayenne, salt and pepper, drizzle with one tablespoon of olive oil, then cover with the lemon slices. Bake at 425 for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, pour off all the accumulated liquid in the pan. Lower oven to 350, pour the remaining lemon juice and olive oil over fish, continue baking for 20-30 minutes, until it is done.
