Broiled fish is one of the most basic and useful cooking techniques to keep in your back pocket. It’s a super simple way to get a Clean & Delicious meal on the table in a very short amount of time.
Sticking with a thin white fish such as Sole, Flounder or Perch will result in a beautifully broiled piece of fish in about five minutes, making this an ideal choice for a quick and nutritious weeknight meal.
Olive oil, salt and pepper would in-and-of-themselves deliver a tasty piece of broiled Sole but I decided to brush the filets with a combination of lemon, olive oil, garlic, parsley, and scallions. Let’s just say that this recipe will be a keeper in my home:).
