  • 6-8  Fish Filets (your preference)
  • 6-8 Tbsp butter/margarine
  • 1-2 Lemons (thinly sliced)
  • 8-12 Tbsp Susan's Southern Marinade
  • Aluminum Foil

Place fish filet on a sheet of foil 1-1/2 inches larger than the filet. Cut one Tbsp of butter/margarine in half and place on top of the fish.  Sprinkle with 1-2 Tbsp of Susan's Southern Marinade and top with 2-3 slices of lemon. Bring the sides of the foil together over the top of the fish and roll down towards the fish.  Do the same to the sides.  These can be grilled for 10-15 minutes or broiled for 8-10 minutes.  Open foil and check to see if the filet is done.  Fish should be flaky. (serves 6-8)

Serving suggestions:  Very good with rice, fresh Salad, corn on the cob, broccoli, or green beans.  Try serving the fish in the foil, to preserve the gravy for dipping.
