“I love seafood! This is a great simple alternative to frying! Remember to use FRESH fish, or it will be a little mushy!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 mild fish fillets (I usually use flounder or tilapia)
  • 14 cup butter
  • 1 dash olive oil, I make my own but unflavored is fine
  • 3 -4 garlic cloves (more or less to your taste)
  • 12 cup good white wine, not too sweet
  • 12 lemon
  • lemon pepper
  • salt, add other seasonings to your taste
  • your favorite mix herbs, I like rosemary and oregano


  1. Melt butter in skillet with oil. Add garlic, cook maybe 2 min on medium heat.
  2. Add the fillets, don't crowd them. Depending on your skillet and fillet size, I usually only do 2 at a time.
  3. Sprinkle seasonings on one side and add herbs to the butter. Add wine and lemon juice now. Cook maybe 5 minute.
  4. Now flip over and sprinkle other side with seasonings. cook 5 more minute or till flakes with a fork easily.
  5. Repeat with other fillets. Add more butter and wine if sauce looks like it is disappearing.
  6. Enjoy!
