fairly lean fish fillets, about 1/2 pound each, about 1/2 inch thick
salt and white pepper
very small star fruit
- Preheat oven to 450°F
- Select a baking dish to hold fillets in a single layer. Spread a little less than half the butter in the dish.
- Set fillets on butter. Add salt and pepper.
- Cut off star fruit tips. Slice fruit thin; arrange on fish.
- Dot with remaining butter.
- Taste star fruit; if rather sweet, sprinkle with a healthy dose of lime juice; if tart, a smaller amount.
- Bake for about 8 minutes, until fish just becomes opaque in the center. It will continue to bake in the dish, so do not overcook.
- Serve at once.
