  • Details

  • Prep Time: 45 minutes
  • Difficulty: • •
  • Cost: $$$$
  • For Ages: 11+
  • Origin:

Large whole fish may be broiled or grilled, indoors or out. Brush liberally with butter and wrap in two thicknesses of heavy duty aluminum foil. Keep surface of fish 4 inches away from source of heat, and broil, without turning, until the flesh flakes easily — about 20 to 25 minutes.

DIRECTIONS

Preheat broiler. Parboil Shad Roe (see recipe for Parboiled Shad Roe); wipe dry. Place on greased broiler rack. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Top with slice of bacon. Broil 5 to 7 minutes. If roe is large, turn it, basting surface with pan drippings; broil until firm (about 5 to 7 minutes longer). Serve with pan drippings and chopped parsley. On a fast day use butter instead of bacon.
