This is yet another fish dish we are crankin’ out of the Scott household. This latest is another twist on baked fish to jazz it up and give it some flavor. This recipe I used for mahi mahi, but would go great with salmon, flounder, tilapia, etc. It’s a very quick and easy way to make a yummy and healthy fish dinner for your family. I used a pound (two 8 oz filets), but the basil line butter would’ve been enough for double that I think.
- 1 lb fish
- 1 garlic clove chopped
- 2-3 basil leaves chopped
- 1/2 lime juice
- 1/2 lime zest
- 2 T butter
- Salt and pepper (pinch of each for butter and also to season fish)
1. Throw all your ingredients together into a small stovetop pot. I ended up only using one basil leaf since mine was ginormous! Melt and stir all together. This should only take about a minute.
2. Your fish should be on a sheet that’s been sprayed with non-stick spray and seasoned with salt and pepper. Now pour your melted basil lime butter on top.
3. Place your fish under your broiler for anywhere from 5-10 minutes until it’s done (this will depend on type of fish you’re using and thickness).
