Lime juice enhances fish flavor-mayonnaise top browns temptingly


  • 2 large fish filets
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • Mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • Paprika
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Parsley


  • Grease a piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil well. Place on baking sheet. Turn up edges of foil so juices will not run off. Place filets on foil, skin side down. With a sharp knife, score fish in crisscross fashion. Squeeze lime juice over surface. Let stand 30 minutes before broiling.
  • Preheat broiler. Spread surface of fish with mayonnaise. Place baking sheet 5″ from broiler unit. Broil 10 minutes, until fish flakes easily with a fork and mayonnaise bubbles and is brown. Sprinkle with paprika and seasonings; garnish with parsley.
