4 firm fish fillets (snapper, mahi, or cod; 1 1/2 lb)

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

1/2 cup light mayonnaise


-- Preheat oven to 450°F. Line baking sheet with foil.

1. Combine cheese, mayonnaise, mint, dill, and lemon juice. Spread mixture evenly over fish; top each fillet with 2 overlapping lemon slices. Place in oven on middle rack; bake 10 minutes.

2. Increase oven heat to broil. Broil 7-8 minutes or until top has browned and fish is 145°F (or flesh separates easily). Serve.

Aprons Advice

-- Do not walk away from the fish while broiling; broilers get very hot and it may burn quickly.

-- You can stir some feta cheese into the salad.
