Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
In a large roasting pan, arrange the sliced lemon, fennel, and red onion in a single layer.
Place the chilipepper rockfish on top of the bed of vegetables.
In a small bowl, mix together the minced garlic, olive oil, thyme, salt, and pepper. Rub this mixture all over the fish.
