Another Fresh Seafood Idea
Broiling is a simple, quick way to bring out the true flavor and texture of fresh fish. It’s so easy to brush a fillet with melted margarine or butter, sprinkle it lightly with salt and freshly ground pepper, and slide it under the broiler for a few minutes.
- 4 medium snapper fillets
- 2 tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
- freshly ground black pepper
Brush fillets with margarine. Lightly salt and pepper. Broil about 4 inches from heat until fish flakes with a fork, about 10 minutes. Serves 6 to 8.
While fish is cooking, prepare Cooked Hollandaise Sauce.
Cooked Hollandaise Sauce
- 3 egg yolks
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 cup firm cold butter, cut into eighths
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon paprika
- 1/16 teaspoon cayenne pepper
In small saucepan, beat together egg yolks, water and lemon juice. Cook over very low heat, stirring constantly, until yolk mixture bubbles at edges. Stir in butter, one piece at a time, until melted and sauce is thickened. Stir in salt, paprika and cayenne. Remove from heat. Pour over cooked fish. Makes about 3/4 cup.
