Make Restaurant-like Butter Lemon Fish in 15 Minutes
In a light-coloured saucepan, whisk and melt the butter on a medium flame. As the butter turns golden brown with a nutty aroma, remove and pour into a small bowl immediately. Now add the lemon juice along with a pinch of salt and pepper. Then, stir and check the seasoning. Remember the sauce remains pourable for about 20-30 minutes.
Pat the fish fillets with paper towels to dry them and season with salt and pepper. Coat the seasoned fillets with flour on both sides and dust off the excess. In a non-stick pan, heat oil and add the fish fillets. Fry for about a minute and a half until golden, crispy on the edges. Then flip on the other side and cook for another minute and a half until done.
Place the fried fillets on a plate and drizzle about a tablespoon of sauce and garnish with coriander and lemon wedges. Serve immediately with a bowl of salad of your choice.
