Preheat the broiler. Place the shad, skin side down on a rack in a baking pan and season with salt and pepper. Broil the shad, about 6 inches away from the heat source until the top is lightly browned and fish is cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes, depending upon how thick it is. (You do not turn it) When done, set on a bed of tomato garnish and serve with buttered spinach or other greens.
