When broiling, keep in mind that ovens can vary. In our ovens, the distance between the heat element and the oven rack measured 7 and 8 inches. The thickness of the fish can make a difference as well. A good test for doneness with fish is to cook it until the fish flakes easily with a fork. If you're not sure how powerful your broiler is, start checking for doneness halfway through the cooking time.
