How To Make Broiled Shad with Thyme
Simply seasoned with thyme, salt, and pepper, this broiled shad is especially flavorful, it ends up succulent and tasty, ideally served with lemon wedges.
Heat the broiler.
Lightly oil a broiler pan or baking sheet.
Put the fish in the pan and rub the surface with the oil.
Sprinkle with the chopped or dried thyme, salt, and pepper. Dot with the butter.
Broil the fish until golden brown and just done, for about 4 minutes for ¾-inch-thick fillets.
Decorate with the thyme sprigs, if using.
Serve with lemon wedges.
- 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.
