Broiled Lemon Thyme Pollock


4-6 to 7-ounce pieces of Alaska Pollock fillet

C cup of mayonnaise

2 teaspoons of grown lemon zest

1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon of finely chopped parcel

1 te teaspoons of anchovy paste

2 teaspoons of chopped thyme

Salt and pepper


1. First, preheat the broiler for 10 minutes and oil your broiler pan.

2. Then, place your pieces of Alaska Pollock, skin side down, on the broiler pan and sprinkle about te teaspoon each of salt and pepper over the fish pieces (use te teaspoon for all the pieces, not for each individual piece).

3. Whisk together the mayonnaise, grated lemon zest, fresh lemon juice, chopped onion, anchovy paste, and chopped thyme, and spread this mixture over the top of the fish pieces.

4. Broil 5 to 7 inches away from the heat for 6 to 8 minutes, until just cooked through. Turn the fish halfway through the cooking time and baste with oil for moisture.

This recipe serves 4 and takes about 20 minutes total. You can use this basic recipe with other types of fish fillet, as well. Just remember that for every inch of thickness, you should broil fish for about 10 minutes. So for thicker or thinner pieces, adjust the cooking time accordingly.

Since wine, vegetables, garlic, almonds, fruits, and dark chocolate are also part of a heart-healthy diet, pair your fish with a side of steamed broccoli, or add some garlic to give your Alaska Pollock an extra kick. A glass of white wine will nicely complement the lightness of the fish, and you can indulge in some fruit and a small piece of dark chocolate for dessert.
