Making fish for someone who thinks they don't enjoy fish? Try this recipe, and it's 20 minutes from start to serve. I like to pair it with creamy rice or vegetable side dish. We found the original version of this recipe on allrecipes.com.
1. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, then lightly coat it with buttery cooking spray.
2. Set the top oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source, then preheat the oven's broiler.
3. In a small bowl, combine the mayo, lemon juice and barbecue sauce.
4. Place the fish on the baking sheet, then sprinkled the salt over the fish.
5. Use the back of a spoon to spread the sauce evenly over the top of the fish.
6. Sprinkle small pinches of cayenne pepper (if you like it a little spicy) over the fish.
7. Cook the fish until the top is browned and bubbling. It should take about 7-10 minutes. Most broilers are uneven, so you might want to rotate the sheet halfway through the cooking. When the fish flakes easily with a fork, it's done.
Yield: 2 Servings
You can freeze individual portions for easy re-heating later.
Microwave on high for approximately 3 minutes. Keep the container open a little to allow steam to escape.
