|This grilled halibut dish is such a simple and delicious meal that will surely impress your guests. You can substitute any white fish of your choice.|
Preheat oven to broil setting.
In a small oven proof frying pan, heat butter on medium heat on stove top until just melted. Turn off the heat and then pour the butter in a small bowl leaving about 1/3 in the pan.
In another small bowl mix spices with lemon juice and water to form a paste. Set aside.
Wash fish in cold water and pat dry with a paper towel. Place it in the buttered pan, turn once or twice to coat with butter. Pour the masala mixture on top of the fish to cover completely. Set aside for 10 minutes.
Pour remaining butter over the fish in the pan. Place the pan in the oven about 10 inches away from the element. After about five minutes, baste the fish with the butter in the pan. Cook for another 5 minutes, being careful not to overcook the fish. Remove pan from the oven and plate the fish. Finish with spiced butter from the pan. Serve with basmati rice and salad.
