"If you’re looking for an easy, healthy dinner, try broiling a piece of fish. It DOES NOT get any easier. And I’m not kidding. Six minutes and dinner is done. I especially like to broil Florida red snapper. Just sprinkle your fillet with a little salt, pepper, olive oil and smoked paprika. Put it 5 to 6 inches from the broiler flame (skin-side up!), don’t flip and that’s it. The meat will be mild and moist with an almost sweet flavor. I’d love to hear if you broil fish at home, and if so, what types do you like best."
This is a very simple baked fish recipe with a delicious sauce that brings out the flavors in the fish without overpowering anything. It's so easy that you just toss everything into one pan, throw it in the oven, let it cool, and enjoy! This recipe will work for most fish, but is especially great for white fish fillets.
