1  medium lemon

1/4  cup butter, softened

1  clove garlic, minced, or 1/2 tsp. bottled minced garlic

Salt and fresh ground pepper

Thaw fish if frozen. Rinse and remove excess water. Preheat broiler in oven. Sprinkle fish with salt and pepper. Place fish on broiler rack above pan and broil 4 inches from heat for about 8 to 12 minutes. Fish should flake easily. Turn once halfway during broiling time.

While fish is broiling, finely shred 1 teaspoon of lemon peel into small bowl. Squeeze 2 teaspoons of juice from half of the lemon. Save remaining lemon and cut into wedges.
