This is one of the easiest seafood recipe that you can make and with only three ingredients required. You will need a whole pompano, that has been thoroughly rinsed and patted dry with paper towels, salt and canola oil.
First, lay your fish in a cutting board and score it at a bias to create a checkerboard or crisscross pattern. Repeat on the other side.
Turn on your oven broiler on high.
Place your pompano in a baking sheet covered with foil and coat both sides of your fish with 2 tbsp of canola oil. Next liberally season it with salt.
Place your fish under the broiler and cook until brown and crisp. Carefully watch your fish while cooking to prevent scorching or burning. You may need to turn your fish more than once to make sure it’s cooked evenly.
Serve immediately with a dipping sauce of lemon and soy sauce.
