Recipe Source:

  • 6 triggerfish fillets
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup lemon or lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • And 1/2 teaspoon table salt.

Preheat the broiler. Then use olive oil to moisten the triggerfish and broiler pan with a light coating, and then put the triggerfish in the pan. Sprinkle lime or lemon juice over it and add salt and pepper to taste. Then place the pan in an oven to broil the fillets for 2 minutes. If the triggerfish looks dry, turn and moisten it with extra lemon juice. Put the fillets back in the oven and broil them for additional two minutes. To avoid over cooking, watch the triggerfish closely. When the fillets become flaky and opaque, the dish is now ready. Take the fish out of the oven and serve while still hot.
