This is an easy, delicious and light dish suitable for any time of the year, but especially on hot summer evenings. Preparation only takes a few minutes and the fillets are baked in around half an hour - the perfect meal after a busy, and hot day.
4 whiting (or fish of choice) fillets
3 or 4 lemons (limes can be used), sliced
4 sprigs of thyme
Preheat oven to 180 degrees (170 degrees fan forced). Lay each fillet onto a sheet of aluminium foil and dot each piece with butter. Layer slices of lemon or lime over the butter then lay a sprig of thyme over the lemon. Thyme leaves can be stripped from the sprig if preferred. Wrap each prepared fillet in the foil and place onto a baking tray. Cook for 30 minutes.
Serve the fillets with the lemon, thyme and juices on a bed of rice.
