Broiling is an amazing way to cook fish.

It’s super fast, and the the fish stays moist on the inside (no long cook times to dry it out) while crisping up on the outside.

This approach to a delicious white fish filet also keeps the seasoning simple (in a good way), resulting in a peppery, zesty dish best served alongside lots of veggies.
