Broiled Fish With Lemon Curry Butter


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon thyme (fresh if available)
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 2 teaspoons grated ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt, or less
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • Ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 (6-ounce) tilapia, blackfish, flounder or hake fillets
  • Fresh lemon juice, for serving
  • Dill fronds or fresh parsley, for serving


  1. Heat the broiler. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in olive oil, thyme, curry powder, ginger and salt; heat until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in lemon zest.
  2. Season fish with salt and pepper and place on a rimmed baking dish. Pour sauce over fish and broil until fish is flaky and cooked through, about 5-8 minutes. Top with a squeeze of lemon juice and fresh dill or parsley, and serve.
