Home » Recipes » How to Cook: Broiled Fish with Citrus and Herbs
3/4 cup orange juice
1/2 minced shallot
1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
4 ounces mild fish fillet(s) such as sole, tilapia or arctic char
1/2 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt, to taste
3 chopped pitted Kalamata olives (optional)
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
Combine juice, shallot and tarragon in a small saucepan and simmer until thickened, 15-20 minutes; cover and set aside.
Heat broiler. Sprinkle both sides of fish with oil, salt and pepper. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and broil 5 to 6 inches from heat, just until fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork, about 5 minutes per half inch of thickness.
Use a wide spatula to transfer fillet to serving plate, spoon sauce on top and sprinkle with olives.
