Broiled Porgy

A simple recipe for broiled fish. Just two things to keep in mind:

          1. To get the skin to crisp and stay attached to the fish and not the broiler pan, be sure to spray some oil               both on the pan and on the skin of the fish before placing it on the pan.

          2. A small whole fish takes about 15-20 minutes.  A larger whole fish can takes up to an hour.  Cook                     until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or toothpick.


  • 2 porgies
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 slices of lemons
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced onions
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley

  1. Clean, scale and wash the fish.  Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Make 3 parallel diagonal cuts in the thickest parts on each side of each fish.
  3. Tuck the oregano, parleys, onions, and 2 slices lemon into each fish.  Spray or brush with oil, then place the fish in a well greased broiler pan.
  4. Place pan under preheated broiler 4 inches from the heating source.  Broil for 15 minutes or until fish browns and flakes easily with a fork.
