Spiced Fish with Lime Butter

This is a really nice recipe for those of you who like fish. I love fish. I can possibly eat it everyday. Okay, maybe at least twice a week.


1/2 pound of butter (let it get soft)
Juice and zest 1 lime
2 minced shallots
6 snapper or grouper fish
(you can keep the heads on, but this recipe is best when the fish is fillet)
2 teaspoons of salt
1 teaspoon of black pepper
1 teaspoon of dried basil
a couple of sprigs of fresh thyme
2 teaspoons of paprika
a dash of pick-a-peppa sauce (I use this with most of my fish dishes)


First beat the lime and butter together until the butter is light and fluffy. Then add the zest, shallots. put the butter mixture on some wax paper and refrigerate.
Heat the oven to 450. Place the fish in a large baking dish, sprinkle with other ingredients. Then heat the butter and drizzle over the fish.. Bake for 5 minutes(according to thickness of fish). When done place some of the remaining lime butter over the fish and serve.
