Expert Tips

Test fish for doneness by placing a fork in the thickest part of the fish, then gently twisting the fork. The fish will flake easily when it's done.

Grate only the yellow portion, or the "zest," of the lemon peel. The bright yellow peel provides the best flavor without bitterness. Also, grate the lemon peel before you squeeze the lemon for juice.
