More About This Recipe

  • I love pan fried fish because it’s tasty, quick, easy and good for you. Serve it with a savory sauce and you’ve got a winning light dinner your family will thoroughly enjoy. I like to serve my fish, such as salmon, tilapia or Alaskan cod with a buttery garlic sauce. It’s a great way to enhance the flavor of your fish without overpowering it. Serve these fish filets with your favorite green salad or pair it with potatoes, green beans and a slice of baguette. It’s lovely for dinner too.
