“From The Essential New York Times Cookbook. Try to get 12 small fillets if possible. If you can just get 4 large ones then sprinkle on seasonings and roll fillet from tail end toward head. If you have 8 then stack in pairs and divide seasonings accordingly.”

  1. Heat the brioler. Sprinkle each fillet with salt and pepper. Select a baking dish large enough to hold 4 fillets in one layer. Brush botoom with some of the melted butter. Arrange 4 fillets skinned side down on bottom of the dish. Divide chopped dill into 2 portions. Sprinkle the tops of the fillets with 1 portion. Cover each fillet with another and sprinkle those with the remaining dill. Place remaining 4 fillets on top of others so there are 4 stacks of 3 fillets each. Brush top of each stack with mustard. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and pour remaining butter over top of each stack.
  2. Blend lemon juice and soy sauce. Pour around and between the stacks.
  3. Place fish under broiler about 6 inches from heat. Watch dish carefully and cook for 5 minutes, making sure breadcrumbs on top of fish do not burn.
  4. Sprinkle fish with scallions and reduce oven heat to 450 Degrees. Place dish on bottom rack of oven. Close door and cook 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven and baste fish with cooking liquid.
