    Tangy Thyme Fish

    Source of Recipe


    Recipe Introduction

    Start to Finish: 25 minutes

    List of Ingredients

    1 pound fresh or frozen salmon, sole, flounder, cod, or orange roughy fillets, 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick
    1 cup chicken broth
    1/4 cup chopped onion
    1/8 teaspoon pepper
    1/8 teaspoon dried thyme or marjoram, crushed
    2 tablespoons water
    1 teaspoon cornstarch
    1/4 cup original-style buttermilk ranch salad dressing
    2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley
    Fresh lemon slices (optional)


    1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish and pat dry with paper towels. Measure the thickness of fish.
    2. In a 10-inch skillet combine the broth, onion, pepper, and thyme or marjoram. Bring to boiling. Place fish in skillet, tucking under any thin edges so fish cooks evenly. Cover and simmer for 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness or until fish just flakes easily with a fork. Remove fish to a hot platter; keep warm.
    3. Bring liquid in skillet to boiling; boil, uncovered, over medium-high heat for 3 to 5 minutes or until reduced to about 1/2 cup. Combine water and cornstarch; stir into liquid in skillet. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Stir in salad dressing and parsley. Serve herb sauce and, if desired, lemon slices with fish. Makes 4 servings.
