Lemon Broiled Fish

Last week, I made this simple and quick fish dish for our family. The flavor of the fish is phenomenal and this recipe is Bo-approved!

The first step is to mix up the sauce. I used the juice from one fresh lemon, 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard, 2 tablespoons of melted butter, a bit of pepper.

I used frozen fish fillets that I quickly thawed under running water. I used both tilapia and orange roughy so we we would be able to compare the flavor of both types of fish. I covered a cookie sheet with foil, placed the thawed fillets on top, and coated them liberally with the sauce mixture.


Voila! The completed dish. The front piece of fish is the tilapia and the fish in back was the orange roughy. We enjoyed the tilapia more than the orange roughy, but both types were very good. I served the fish with broccoli and brown rice. Yum!
Lemon Broiled Fish

6 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp. butter (melted)
1/2 tsp. pepper
4 orange roughy fillets

Combine the first four ingredients and mix well. Spray a baking pan with PAM and place fish in pan. Liberally coat fish with sauce mixture. Broil for 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily. Quick, easy, and great with brown rice and broccoli for a healthy dinner!

  1. My Hubby loves fish and I’m always looking for easy things to do with it.

    I’ll have to give it a try, thanks.

  2. I think it would have been better if it had been cooked longer. Not a real fan of baked fish when it is squishy.. I would much rather have fried fish, hushpuppies and fried potatoes….but I guess that is not on my diet anymore!!!!! I really don’t think much of this
    low fat and low sodium diet…..

  3. Looks yummy! I wish I would have come across this a few hours ago, as we had tilapia for dinner tonight…

    Happy ICLW!
