Recipe Notes

  • Fish Alternatives: There’s nothing quite like shad. Still, this is a good basic broiled fish recipe to use with other fish fillets, such as red snapper, sea bass, striped bass, pompano, and bluefish.
  • For Broiled Shad with Oregano, use ¾ teaspoon fresh or ¼ teaspoon dried oregano in place of the thyme.
  • Wine Recommendation: The richness of this simple preparation is delightful, accompanied by an acidic chardonnay. Look for a reasonably priced Mâcon-Villages or Chablis, both from Burgundy in France.
