  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 (6-ounce) amberjack fillets (about 3/4 inch thick)
  • 1 lemon
  • Country-Style Dijon Cream Sauce

  2. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Coat fillets with cooking spray, and rub with seasoning mixture. Add fish to pan. Cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until fillets flake easily when tested with a fork.

  3. While fish cooks, grate 1 teaspoon rind from lemon; squeeze juice to measure 1 tablespoon. Reserve lemon rind for Country-Style Dijon Cream Sauce.

  4. Place 1 fillet on each of 4 serving plates. Drizzle fillets evenly with lemon juice, and top with a dollop of cream sauce.
