Fish is naturally low in fat, and most of my favourite fish recipes have the added virtue of being quick and easy to prepare as well. This one is no exception.
Broiled Fish Steaks with Garlic Lemon Sauce
11/2 to 2 lbs (750 g-1 Kg) fish steaks (any fish)
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
3 Tbs (45 ml) bread crumbs
2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbs (30 ml) lemon juice
1/2 tsp (2 ml) paprika
1/4 tsp (1 ml) dried tarragon
3 Tbs (45 ml) white wine or fish stock
Season the fish steaks on both sides with salt and pepper and broil from 3 to 5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the steaks. The fish should be firm to the touch when done. Combine the bread crumbs, garlic, lemon juice, paprika, and tarragon in a small bowl. Add the wine or fish stock and stir until thick and creamy. Top the fish with the sauce immediately prior to serving. Serves 4 to 6.
