Lime Marinated Fish Fillets

Good morning from Kumama's Kitchen. Here in the east (Maryland) we are having another one of our tropical days- Think I was cooler in the rain forest of Costa Rico!!
Thought a quick and easy to prepare fish dish would be in order for today . This lime marinated fish can be made in the broiler or out side on the grill- use what ever fish is on sale and looks good at the market . This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled Stay cool and drink lots of water!!

Lime Marinated Fish Fillets
by Kumama

1 pound fish fillets (cod, halibut, flounder, tilapia are good)
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup lime juice
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1 teaspoon dried dill or 1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped (more or less to taste)
Salt and Pepper to taste

For marinade, combine water, lime juice, honey, oil and dill zip top bag. Mix well. Add fish filets. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours. Turn bag once or twice to make sure all portions of fish are exposed to marinade.

Remove fish, discard marinade. Place fish on the greased broiler pan /tray, tucking under any thin edges so fish will cook evenly.

Cook fish under medium grill until fish flakes. Turn halfway through cooking and
baste the fish with juices in pan. Remember fish cooks quickly- do not over cook. Sprinkle with lime juice just before serving. Serves 2-4 depending on appetite size!!
