Broiled Shad with Thyme
Fish Alternatives There's nothing quite like shad. Still, this is a good basic broiled fish recipe to use with other fish fillets, such as red snapper, sea bass, striped bass, pompano, and bluefish.
Variation Broiled Shad with Oregano: Use 3/4 teaspoon fresh or 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano in place of the thyme.
The richness of this simple preparation is delightful accompanied by an acidic Chardonnay. Look for a reasonably priced Mâcon-Villages or Chablis, both from Burgundy in France.
