  • 4 - six oz. firm whitefish fillets (cod, halibut or flounder), rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 tablespoons - olive or canola oil
  • 6 tablespoons - butter
  • 2 - fresh jalapeno peppers, stemmed, seeded, cut into thin strips
  • 1/4 cups - snipped fresh basil
  • 1 - lime, cut into quarters, for serving
  • Directions:

    1. Brush fish with oil; sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. For a gas or charcoal grill, grill fillets on greased rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat for 4-6 minutes per 1/2-inch of thickness or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, turning once.

    2. Meanwhile, for jalapeno butter, heat butter over medium heat in a large skillet. Add jalapeno; cook and stir 5 minutes or until tender and just beginning to brown.

    3. To serve, top fish with jalapeno butter and fresh basil. Pass lime wedges.
