Flounder/Tilapia/Whatever White Fish Fillets you have around with simple pan-seared Potatoes in an Orange and Mint Butter Sauce

Introduction

I love all of the heavy buerre sauces and have found ways to cut the butter down to very moderate amounts that you can still taste and feel decadent eating. It's technique and water. Really.

Shown with a side of peeled brussels sprouts that were blanched, shocked in cold water, then drained, and quickly heated in the hot hot pan I had cooked the potato and fish in.

Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    Tilapia fillets (2-4)
    1 orange, zested and juiced
    3 T. Unsalted Butter
    2 Potatoes that were already cooked and cooled, sliced into cm. rounds
    3 T of chopped mint
    2 T Whole wheat flour
    Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

In a large, sprayed saute pan at medium heat sear the potatoes in a pat of butter, getting good color on each side (looks like a seared scallop).

Dry fish. Season with salt and pepper on both sides and dredge in whole wheat flour, shaking away excess.

Add a Tablespoon of butter to pan and cook fish until golden on each side.

Squeeze lemon all over potatoes and fish in pan, add zest and mint and shake it constantly. After your "sauce" thickens" add remaining butter, shaking still over heat. Add some water after it thickens to loosen and shake on top some salt and pepper. Shake until it thinly coats the back of a spoon.

Plate. Spoon over any residual sauce. Eat!

Serves two people who have not eaten enough fat all day.
