Lent recipes - Pan Fried Fish

·        Fish fillets

·Salt and pepper (and/or other seasoning such as Cajun or Creole seasoning)

·        All purpose flour

·Butter and olive oil (or either one)

Season fish. 

Dredge in flour to coat.

Heat butter and oil (equal parts) or one or the other in a heavy skillet—just enough to coat the bottom of the pan. 

Quickly pan-fry the fish, turning only once. 

Remove to a side plate and make a quick sauce (if desired) to pour over. 

Garnish with some chopped parsley and a slice of lemon.

A quick sauce:

·        A finely chopped medium onion, bunch of green onions or 2 or 3 shallots

·Dry white wine 

·2 or 3 tablespoon finely chopped dill, parsley, chervil or tarragon

After the fish is removed from the pan, sauté the onion, stirring, just until it is tender. Pour over a large splash of wine and cook over high, stirring to reduce the wine by about 1/2. Drizzle over the fish before serving. Sprinkle with one of the fresh herbs.
