(HealthDay News) -- Broiling is a healthy way to cook fish that also provides great flavor. If you haven't broiled before, a few basic tips can help you broil your fish to perfection.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics lists these tips for broiling delicious, healthy fish.

  • Understand how the technique works -- broiling is basically like grilling food upside down, since the heat comes from above the food instead of below it.
  • Use aluminum foil to line a baking dish, and spray it with cooking spray.
  • Place the fish in the dish, skin side down.
  • Slide the baking dish into the oven about 5 inches away from the broiler.
  • Fish should appear flaky and opaque when done; test it with a food thermometer to make sure it has reached an internal temperature of 145 degrees.
