Lemon and Almond Baked Bluefish

Ingredients

  • 1 bluefish fillet of about a pound and a half
  • salt and pepper
  • zest of one lemon
  • 1 t fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 T butter
  • 1/4 c sliced almonds
  • olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves finely chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Remove the dark strip of flesh from the center of the fillet. I’m told that’s where the strongest fishy taste lives.
  3. Place fish skin-side down on a rimmed baking sheet and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Sprinkle lemon zest and thyme all over fillet.
  5. Top the fish with chunks of butter and sprinkle almonds on top.
  6. Roast until fish is just opaque and almonds are starting to brown at edges, 6 to 9 minutes. This fish will NOT flake like a lighter fish, so don’t wait for that to happen to determine doneness.

You left out what you’re suppose to do with the garlic!
