  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Cooking spray
  • Tzatziki:
  • 3/4 cup plain 2% reduced-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat broiler.
  2. 2. To prepare fish, brush fish with oil; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Place fish on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 6 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or desired degree of doneness.
