One of my favorite simple suppers, one that's light and easy and healthy too. It's quick enough for a weeknight supper but also special enough for company. Weight Watchers, you'll love this fish recipe, just 4 Weight Watchers points for something that tastes rich and satisfying.
Feeling heavy and slow from food-centered gatherings with friends and family over the long weekend? Overeat at breakfast or lunch?
SOLE with HERB BUTTER is the cure. Quick to prepare and serve, there’s barely time to toss a salad.
FISH with HERB BUTTER
Time to table: 15 minutes
- 6-ounce filet of sole or another mild-flavored, firm-fleshed saltwater fish such as flounder or cod
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- 1 teaspoon soft butter
- Generous splash fresh lemon juice
- Generous portions chopped fresh chive and dill
Preheat broiler. Lightly brush both sides of filet with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on baking sheet and broil for 3 minutes without turning. (More time is needed for thicker filets. See TIPS.)
Meanwhile, mix butter, lemon juice and herbs in a small dish. Remove fish and dab butter mixture on top. Broil for another minute. Garnish with lemon slices and dill sprigs and serve immediately.
Have you planted a few herbs yet? Keeping two or three favorites herbs in pots will keep you in herbs all summer long, all for the price of a few plants. See my post about growing herbs at home, Never Buy Fresh Herbs Again.
Fresh dill and chive work beautifully together but when I broiled the fish most recently, I used what was on hand, fresh tarragon. It complements fish too!
