Happy Day Broiled Opah
- To prepare Opah for broiling purposes, place 3 lemon slices under each fillet – at top, middle and bottom. Dust each fillet with cumin. Sprinkle gently with sea salt.
- Mix 1 teaspoon lemon juice with 5 tablespoons melted butter and brush on Opah. Let stand for about 30 minutes.
- Broil until fillets are a lovely golden brown. To apply a touch of elegance, sprinkle pecan pieces over Opah and return to broiler about 1-2 minutes.
