    • Glazed Fish

      Light, quick-cooking fish hits the spot when the temperature climbs. Choose from our three simple glazes -- each one provides a savory finish with only a few ingredients. The next three slides give a close-up look at this ultra-versatile recipe.

    • Step 1: Preparing Your Pan

      Preparing your pan is an essential first step to perfect Glazed Fish. To grease your broiler pan, dip a brush in softened butter or shortening. Lightly brush the cold rack in the pan. The next slide will show you how to ensure your pan's perfect placement in the oven.

    • Step 2: Adjusting Your Oven Rack

      In a cold oven, place your prepared pan with fish on the top oven rack. Adjust the rack until the surface of the fish is 4 to 5 inches from the heat. Step 3 outlines our tips for glazing fish.

    • Step 3: Cooking the Fish

      Pull the oven rack out of the oven before turning or brushing fish. The heating element is very hot, and it's easy to get burned if you try to reach in. Our complete Glazed Fish recipe includes preparation instructions for four different glazes, plus complete cooking instructions.

    • Garlic and Pepper Stir-Fry

      With a little preparation, you can finish this recipe while the glazed fish broils. Our next two slides detail a time-saving strategy for cutting the sweet peppers required for this recipe.
