Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Other mild-flavor, firm-textured fish fillets, such as halibut, can be used in this recipe. Cut large fillets into serving-size pieces before broiling.
  • tip 2
    Broiling time will vary depending on the size and thickness of fillets. Measure the fish at its thickest point and cook 10 minutes per inch of thickness.
