Number of servings

Serves 2

Ingredients

  1. 2 orange roughy fillets, each 4 ounces
  2. 1 lemon, cut into 4 wedges
  3. 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped

Directions

Preheat the broiler (grill). Position the rack 4 inches from the heat source. Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

Place the fish on the prepared baking sheet. Squeeze the juice from 2 lemon wedges over the fillets. Sprinkle with thyme.

Broil (grill) until the fish is opaque throughout when tested with a tip of a knife, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven. Garnish with the two remaining lemon wedges and serve immediately.
