Herbed Fish

Herbed Fish
This simple fare couldn’t be easier. Put it in the oven after a long day out, and enjoy it with minimal clean up. Advance assembly of the fish package makes it even easier, as would advance cooking of the rice. Bonus: It’s inexpensive and healthy as the dickens. Five pounds of whiting is at Sam’s Club for less than $12. Let me know if you want some.

  • Dry Rice, about ½ cup
  • Vegetable or chicken broth or water, 1 cup

  3. Place fillets of whiting, cod, or any other basic fish on a piece of parchment paper.
  4. Drizzle with olive oil or melted butter.
  5. Dust with fresh or ground herbs, salt and pepper. Dill, rosemary or thyme are particularly delicious.
