Any suggestions on how to make this other than frying it in butter & lemon?

  • Japanese style: pan fry one side, flip it, spread with mayo, cover it and steam it until done

    Hot and spicy: dip in beaten egg then in a mixture of whole sesame seeds and wasabi powder

    Mexican: poach and serve topped with green or red salsa

    Candied: panfry and when the second side is about 3 min from done, pour on real maple syrup, flip over in sauce before serving

    Pouch: lay on oiled parchment or foil, top with thinly sliced veg (onion, zucchini, peppers, garlic, whatever), seal and bake or bbq

    Soup: make a light soup (onions, garlic, carrots, celery sauted, stir in veg stock or mild beer or brewed tea, boil, add chopped fish and heat til done)

    Baked: lay on oiled parchment, top with bread crumbs (mix with pepper, parsley, butter, cheese or nothing at all) & bake @475F

    It's just fish --you can cook almost all fish in the same 1000 different ways.

  • My Grandma Natalia would put them in a baking pan and use a small dab of butter on each fillet and lots of lemon juice and pepper. Then she would cover the baking pan with foil and bake until done. It is best to use a glass pan. Still has butter, but much less fat than frying them.
