Easy Lemon Butter Fish Easy Lemon Butter Fish
Number of Servings: 1


    16 oz Grouper (fish)
    3 tbsp Butter, salted
    2 fl oz Lemon Juice
    3 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    2 tsp Salt
    1 tsp Paprika
    1 tsp Garlic powder
    1 tsp Onion powder
    .25 tsp Pepper, black


Use paper towels to thoroughly dry excess moisture from fish fillets this step is crucial for fish to brown nicely in pan. Set aside.
In a bowl, combine melted butter, lemon juice and zest, and 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt. Stir to combine well. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining 1/2 tsp kosher salt, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper. Evenly press spice mixture onto both sides of fish fillets.
In a large, heavy pan over medium high heat, heat up the olive oil until hot. Cook 2 fish fillets at a time to avoid overcrowding (allows for browning.) Cook each side just until fish becomes opaque, feels somewhat firm in the center, and is browned lightly drizzle some of the lemon butter sauce as you cook, reserving the rest for serving. Take care not to over-cook, as that will result in a tougher texture.
Serve fish with with remaining lemon butter sauce, basil or parsley, and lemon wedges.
