Broiled Fish

Mother's secret in preparing this dish was to butter the fish before dusting it with flour. That seals in the moisture and makes the fish so succulent. —Ann Berg, Chesapeake, Virginia

    The cook was fine, but despitely lacked seasoning. Added some salt and it improved 100%.

    I used Swhai fish and instead of the recommended seasoning I sprinkled some Old Savannah Spice Co. seafood seasoning on it. Wow, it was delicious!
