Baked Sheepshead on Hoppin' John

Yield Makes about 8 servings
Sheepshead is a local game fish. You may substitute any firm white fish.

Ingredients

  • 8 (6-ounce) sheepshead or grouper fillets (about 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • Lemon-Herb Butter, softened
  • Hoppin' John
  • Garnish: fresh basil sprigs

How to Make It

  1. Sprinkle fish with salt and pepper; spread 2 tablespoons Lemon-Herb Butter on each fillet. Place fish on a lightly greased jellyroll pan. Bake at 400º for 10 to 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve over Hoppin' John. Garnish, if desired.
