Pan Fried Fish with Lemon and Parsley
- 8 ounces of fish fillet
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- teaspoon of pepper
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 1/2 lemon
- 1 tablespoon of parsley - chopped
- 1 tablespoon of butter
Chop the parsley and squeeze the juice out of 1/2 lemon. Set aside.
Sprinkle the salt and pepper on both sides of the fish.
Preheat a non-stick frying pan for 1 minute on medium-high heat.
Add the oil and heat until the oil shimmers (about 1 minute)
Add the fish, skin side down.
For a 1-inch thick piece of fish, fry it for approximately 4-to-5 minutes on the first side.
Then, flip the fish over once, and continue cooking for approximately:
1-2 minutes = Medium Rare to Medium
3-4 minutes = Medium to Medium Well
5 minutes = Well Done
Remove the fish from the pan onto serving plate.
Wipe out the pan with a paper towel.
Melt the butter in the frying pan, and then turn off the heat. Add the lemon juice and parsley. Swirl the ingredients together and immediately pour it over the fish and serve.
