LIGHTLY "FLOURED" FISH IN LEMON BUTTER SAUCE





LIGHTLY “FLOURED” FISH IN
LEMON BUTTER SAUCE

I was amazed at how this simple fish dish is restaurant-quality good!  So simple and yet so good!  As with most fish-fry meals, this is quick and easy, which is great for those times when time is a factor.  So little bake mix is required that you can easily substitute almond flour mixed with a bit of coconut flour instead.

3 thin fish fillets (1 lbs; 0.45 kg)
Salt and pepper, to taste
3 tbsp Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, OR (45 mL)
  simply a mix of almond flour and a little coconut flour
3 tbsp olive oil, OR more (45 mL)
Lemon Butter Sauce:
4 tbsp unsalted butter (60 g)
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice (15 mL)
1/8 tsp salt (0.5 mL)
1/8 tsp black pepper (0.5 mL)
1/2 tsp dried parsley (2 mL)

Rinse fish fillets and pat dry with paper towels.  Sprinkle fish on both sides with salt and pepper.  Sprinkle fish with Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2 (OR alternative) on both sides.

In large frying pan in olive oil over medium high heat, cook fish fillets about 2 minutes on both sides (depending on the thickness of the fish) until golden brown and fish flakes easily when using a fork.  Place on serving platter.  Spoon all of the sauce over the fish and sprinkle with parsley.  Serve at once.

Lemon Butter Sauce:  While fish is cooking, prepare this sauce.  In saucepan, melt butter.  Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.  Stir in lemon juice, salt and black pepper.
