Lemon Baked Fish

Elegant dining doesn't get much easier than this. This dish is perfect for quick weekday entertaining. On the weekends in summer, I put everything together in a heavy duty aluminum pouch and grill it instead!
  • 1 1/2 pounds white fish
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 3 teaspoons butter
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Heat oven to 450°F.

Place the fish in an oven-proof dish. Blend together all of the ingredients and pour over the fish. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
