Preparation time 10mins
Cooking time 15mins


Step 1

Set the oven rack on the rail closest to the broiler element and turn the broiler to high. Preheat the baking sheet under the broiler for at least 10 minutes.

Rub the dull side of a piece of foil (one the size of your pan) with a little olive oil and place the fish fillets, skin side down if applicable, on the foil.

Season fish with salt, pepper and garlic. Dot the with butter. Pull the pan out of the broiler and carefully lift or slide the foil onto the hot pan. Place immediately back in the broiler.

Fish is done when its flakes or layers can be easily separated with a fork. It should not be pink between the flakes but a moist, pearly white.

Remove the cooked fish from the oven and allow it to sit for one minute. Loosen from the foil and serve.
