Ingredients

1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 tablespoon dry white wine
1-1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1-1/2 pounds red snapper, orange roughy or grouper fillets (about 4 to 5 ounces each)

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Combine butter, wine, garlic, lemon peel and pepper in small bowl; stir to blend.
  2. Place fish in foil-lined shallow baking pan. Top with seasoned butter. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until fish begins to flake easily when tested with fork.

Serve fish over mixed salad greens, if desired. Or, add sliced carrots, zucchini and bell pepper cut into matchstick-size strips to the fish in the baking pan for an easy vegetable side dish.
