  1. On work surface, position lemon on side to form fish body. If it rolls, trim away a small slice to create a flat bottom.
  2. Cut a round slice from second lemon. Towards back of fish body, cut small slit; insert round slice to form fin.
  3. Also from second lemon, cut small, quarter-moon-shaped slice of rind. Make small incision in top of fish; insert rind to form head.
  4. From lime rind, cut two same-size rounds; attach to front with toothpicks to form fins.
