Lemon Butter Fish may be more frequently ordered at restaurants than made at home. It’s not your typical Tuesday night, in-between after a long day’s meal. But it can be. And it is.
This Easy Lemon Butter Fish goes from stovetop to tabletop with five ingredients in just 20 minutes.
This recipe is fabulous with any tender, flaky, mild flavored white fish filets. A firmer white fish works better than soft textured fish. A nice fresh cod, halibut, or mahi mahi would work beautifully. You’ll want 4 good-sized, firm white fish filets that are about 6 inches long and 1 inch thickness. Definitely look for that 1-inch thickness, as thinner fish fillets don’t cook up as nicely.
A heavy, large and even-cooking non-stick skillet is preferred for this technique. For flipping delicate food like fish, I use an extra wide stainless steel turner with a smooth/narrow edge or a fish spatula to get underneath and flip it easily.
