Broiled Pompano

Yield 2 servings


  • 2 (1-pound) dressed pompano
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 sprig fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • Lemon slices

How to Make It

  1. Rinse fish thoroughly in cold water; pat dry. Rub fish with oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and paprika; place on well-greased rack in a broiler pan. Broil fish 5 to 6 inches from heating element 5 minutes; turn fish, and continue broiling an additional 5 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Remove fish to a serving platter, and keep warm.
