When we lived in Massachusetts we got spoiled by the easy access to fresh, high-quality fish. After all, we lived in one of the busiest fishing ports in the country!

Whether you have access to fish fresh off the dock or fillets from your grocer’s freezer section, this recipe produces mouthwatering results in a matter of minutes. Just remember that if your fish is frozen, you’ll need to remove it from any vacuum-sealed packaging before you defrost it.
