Broiled fish fillet recipes

This broiled fish recipe is so easy; you can have it on the table in less than 30 minutes. I was in the mood for some Cajun style broiled fish. We had some Tilapia fillets in the freezer that my wife had picked up while shopping, so I took them out to thaw for dinner.

First I have to tell you, my favorite fish fillet for this recipe is fresh Walleye that I usually get from my friend George who is an avid fisherman.

I haven’t seen George in a while and didn’t have any Walleye left in the freezer so I used the Tilapia. You can use your favorite fish with this recipe.

Here is how made this Broiled Fish Fillet Recipe:

First I lined a cookie sheet with tin foil, sprayed it with non-stick spray, and placed the fish about 5 inches apart.

 Then I melted a ½ stick of butter in the microwave. (Another use for my microwave), and poured the butter over the fillets.

I seasoned each fillet with a healthy dose of McCormick Cajun seasoning, and then placed three slices of fresh lemon in between the fish.

Set the broiler on hi and broiled these for about 5 to 6 minutes per side, seasoning again after you turn it over. The time per side may vary based on the thickness of the fillets.

The reason I used a cookie sheet and tin foil is that I wanted these to broil and soak in the butter and lemon. I would have lost a lot of the flavor using a regular broiler pan, as it would have dripped away.

This is a quick, easy and delicious meal; serve it up with your favorite vegetable, rice or French fries if you must.

As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy.
