How to Broil Fish

Broil fish in two simple steps!

  • Set the broiler to low and place the fish about six inches from the flame. If you don’t have a low-broiler setting, set the fish farther away and keep an eye on it.
  • Broil the fish until it’s cooked through. The amount of time will depend on the thickness of the fish, but it should be ready in about 6 to 8 minutes.

Tomato Caper Sauce

This tomato caper sauce for fish cooks in less than 15 minutes and is so flavorful.

  1. Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a medium skillet.
  2. Sauté garlic and shallots for four to five minutes on medium-low heat.
  3. Add the chopped tomatoes and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Pour in the wine and cook for about five minutes until it reduces.
  5. Add the capers and cook for one minute.

What to Serve with Broiled Fish

This fish with tomato caper sauce would be delicious over whole wheat pasta, rice, spiralized zucchini noodles, or cauliflower rice.

For an extra vegetable, you could also put some asparagus on the tray with the fish and cook them at the same time. Some other veggie side dish options are Green Beans, Garlic Broccolini, or Roasted Asparagus.

Variations:

  • Fish: Thawed frozen fish will work if you don’t have fresh. Any white fish fillet can be used such as tilapia, grouper, cod or flounder.
  • Tomatoes: If tomatoes are out of season, use canned diced tomatoes. You can also use cherry or grape tomatoes for the sauce.
  • Wine: If you don’t like cooking with alcohol, sub chicken or vegetable broth for it.
  • Shallot: Swap the shallot for red onion.
  • Olives: Add kalamata olives to the sauce.
