Preparation:

Broiler - 
  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle with lemon-pepper seasoning. 
  2. Place fish on the greased unheated rack of a broiler pan. Turn any thin portions under to make uniform thickness. Broil 4 inches from the heat for 5 minutes. Carefully turn fish over. Broil for 3 to 7 minutes more or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together butter, basil, parsely and lemon peel. 
  4. To serve, spoon 1 tsp of the butter mixture on top of each fish piece. Cover and refrigerate remaining butter mixture for another use. Makes 4 (1 fillet and 1 tsp basil butter) servings plus 3 tsps additional basil butter. 
Grill - 
  1. Place fish on the greased rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals.
  2. Grill for 8 to 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, carefully turning over once  halfway through grilling. 
  3. Makes 4 (1 filled and 1 tsp basil butter) servings plus 3 tsps additional basil butter.
