|Pan fried fish with a lemon garlic sauce served with homemade toasted gnocchi and roasted veggies!
Obligatory garlic bread on the side..
So I have been on a sea food diet recently. I have always loved seafood but I have noticed that I tend to eat seafood more than meat and poultry. I have SO MANY recipes for seafood and that even I can’t keep track. Here’s yet another one of them. Easy enough for a weeknight meal and fancy enough for company.
Pan fried fish with a lemon garlic sauce
To serve 4:
4-6 Filets of Tilapia (I like Tilapia because it’s cheap:) , pretty mild and readily available).
Cornmeal- 1/2 cup
(Season with Salt, pepper, red chili flakes (optional))
Lemon garlic sauce
Juice of 1 Lemon
2-3 cloves of garlic minced
1/2 cup of good white wine
2 Tbsp of flat leaf Italian parsley chopped
2 Tbsp of OO
1-2 pats of butter
Salt, black pepper to taste
Wash and pat dry the fish. Dredge the fish in the cornmeal and shake off the excess. Pan fry two fillets at a time (or more depending on the size of your pan) in 2 Tbsp of OO for 2-3 minutes on each side till the fish is cooked. (White on the inside and should easily flake with a fork). Keep covered warm with a foil wrap till ready to serve.
In a shallow pan, heat oil and butter till the butter melts. Add garlic and saute for a couple of minutes. Add the white wine and the parsley and season with salt and black pepper. Bring to a rolling boil and take it off the stove. Drizzle over the fish and serve immediately.
