BROILED Lemon Oregano FISH Fillets

Table of Contents: SEAFOOD/FISH


This recipe was featured in the Sept. issue of the online magazine, Crappie NOW,  a specialty magazine for fishing enthusiasts at


4 to 6 fresh or frozen fish fillets

1 or 2 medium onions, sliced into rings

1 sweet red pepper, sliced into rings

½ cup butter or margarine, melted


Freshly ground black pepper

2 T. lemon juice

1 tsp. crushed oregano

¼ tsp. mild paprika, plus extra for garnish

Toasted English muffins or hot rice (optional)






Place an oven rack on the highest level in the oven.  Preheat the oven to 500 degrees on broil.  Spray-oil a baking pan and place the fish fillets in it.  Melt the butter in a small bowl in the microwave; then brush a small amount on the tops of the fish fillets reserving most of the butter for the sauce.  Add rings of onions and sweet red peppers on top of fillets; then sprinkle with salt and pepper.


Add the lemon juice, oregano, and paprika to the remaining butter and beat to blend ingredients.


Place the fish fillets under the broiler on the highest rack and broil about 10 minutes or less.  Do not turn the fish.  The fish should flake easily when lifted with a fork and have turned from translucent to white color.  Keep the oven light on and watch carefully since the heat is high and fish cooks rapidly.


After removing fish from the oven, beat the sauce again; then pour over the fish fillets.  Place the fillets on the toasted English muffins or serve over rice.  Sprinkle with paprika for garnish, if desired.
