Beautifully Broiled Salmon or Trout

Fresh or frozen fish turn out perfectly every time with this recipe and no aluminum foil is needed!


Fresh or frozen fish (whole or filets)

2 Tablespoons butter or olive oil to drizzle over fish

lemon pepper seasoning

sea salt to taste

dill leaves for garnish

1 lemon, thinly sliced lemon for garnish


Rinse fish in cold water and pat dry with a paper towel.  Brush both sides of thawed fish fillets with butter and sprinkle with lemon pepper seasoning. If fish has not been skinned place skin side up in broiler pan (sometimes salmon filets have skin on one side). Set oven to broil at 550˚. Broil with tops 2-3 inches from heat until light brown, about 5 minutes. Turn carefully and garnish with lemon pepper seasoning, a lemon slice and more butter. Broil until fish flakes easily with fork, 5 to 7 minutes longer.

Serve warm with Rice Pilaf, steamed asparagus or broccoli and dairy free Ranch Dressing.
