Note: Salmon, tuna, and swordfish steaks are ideal for broiling, but they are also expensive. Other fish steaks that may be broiled include cod, haddock, halibut, king mackerel, and large bluefish.

Fillets may also be broiled using this recipe if they are thick or firm enough to avoid breaking up on the grill.

5. Plate the fish. Place a slice of seasoned butter on top of each steak. Garnish the plate with a lemon wedge. Serve immediately.


For lean white fish (halibut, cod, etc.), dredge in flour and shake off excess before dipping in the melted butter or oil. Broil as in basic recipe.

Other compound butters may be used in place of maître d'hôtel butter.

For fat fish, omit the butter and serve the fish with a small quantity of flavorful vinaigrette.
