Broiled Fish with Lemon Butter: 30-Minute Meal
Everyone has time for fish, even the busiest, most frazzled of us. It doesn’t get much easier than a a baked-fish recipe, which usually says something to the effect of: pop it under the broiler for about 10 minutes, or until it’s flaky.
One of the most satisfying fish recipes we know is also the simplest: Broiled Scrod with Lemon Butter. It’s rich and delicate, with a bit of snipped parsley to add a spike of color and fresh flavor. This is a super-flexible, easy recipe. You don’t have to be bound to using scrod; cod, or another mild white fish such as flounder will do just fine. And if you don’t use butter, substitute margarine.
OK, we know what you’re thinking: Fish smells up my kitchen. But when you broil it, not only does it not have the splatter factor of pan-frying, it also cleans up in a snap. Simply cook the fish on an aluminum foil–lined baking sheet, and then toss the foil when the meal’s over. Done!
