Cover the bottom of a cookie sheet with foil. Lay the fish on the foil. Cut the lemon into four slices, and insert one slice into each cut on top of the fish. Squeeze the remaining juice over the top of the fish. Slice one clove of garlic into three equal pieces, and insert one slice into each cut on top of the fish next to the lemon.

Drain the capers and place into a bowl with the remaining ingredients, and whisk until well combined. Pour over the fish and rub liquid in with hands.
