Grilling fish in the oven is a great way to enjoy a healthy and delicious meal without having to fire up the outdoor grill. Here’s how to grill fish in the oven:
- Olive oil
- Lemon wedges (optional)
- Preheat your oven to the broil setting.
- Place the fish fillets on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
- Place the baking sheet in the oven, about 6 inches (15 cm) away from the broiler.
- Broil the fish fillets for 6-8 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the fillets, or until the fish is cooked through and lightly browned on the outside.
- Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the fish rest for a few minutes before serving.
- Serve the grilled fish hot, garnished with lemon wedges if desired.
Note: You can also use a grilling rack or a wire rack set over a baking sheet to elevate the fish while it cooks, allowing excess oil and moisture to drip off. Keep an eye on the fish as it broils, as it can easily burn if left unattended. Also, make sure the fish is fully cooked and reaches a safe internal temperature of 145°F (63°C) before consuming.
