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.


Wash fish; dry with paper towels. Sprinkle with Ac'cent*. Let stand 5 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Brush generously with melted butter or margarine. Place on greased broiler rack in broiler, about 3 inches from heat. Broil about 8 minutes on each side, brushing frequently with melted butter. Arrange on a heated platter; garnish with lemon slices. Makes 6 servings.

*About Ac'cent: This is a form of monosodium glutamate (MSG), which is supposed to intensify flavor, but unessential in any recipe. Some people also have allergies to this ingredient.
