A simple, flavourful preparation that works well with almost any fish and any fresh herb.

Ingredients

Uncooked halibut fillet(s)

1 pound(s)

Table salt

¼ tsp(s)

Black pepper

pinch

Unsalted butter

tbsp(s)

Lemon(s)

1 medium, half for juice and half for garnish

Fresh parsley

2 tbsp(s), or basil, fresh, minced

Instructions

  1. Preheat broiler to high.
  2. Place halibut on a rimmed baking pan; rub all over with salt and pepper. Place little pieces of butter all over fish; broil until fish turns opaque in center, about 10 to 12 minutes.
  3. Immediately remove fish from oven and set on a serving plate; drizzle with freshly squeezed lemon juice. Sprinkle with parsley or basil and garnish with lemon wedges. Yields about 4 ounces fish per serving.

Notes

You can use 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh, minced thyme instead of the parsley or basil if you prefer.
