Sometimes the best recipes are born when you run out of the necessary ingredients and have to improvise. A few weeks ago I was intending to make fish with some sort of buttery lemon sauce for dinner and discovered I was out of lemon. But I did have lime! And cilantro. And so… pan-fried fish with cilantro lime butter was born. Turned out to be one of the best fish recipes I’d made in a long time!

Pan-Fried Fish with Cilantro Lime Butter

Ingredients

    Cilantro Lime Butter:
  • 1/4 cup salted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, chopped
  • Zest of one lime
  • Pinch salt
  • Fish:
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup golden flax seed meal
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp chipotle powder (can substitute chili powder)
  • 4 flaky white fish filets, 4 to 6 ounces each
  • 2 tbsp butter or olive oil

Instructions

    Cilantro Lime Butter:
  1. In a small bowl, add the butter, cilantro, lime zest, and salt. Mix until thoroughly combined. Turn out onto a piece of waxed paper and then shape into a log. Refrigerate until firm.
  2. Pan-Fried Fish:
  3. In a large plastic bag, combine almond flour, flax seed meal, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and chipotle powder. Shake bag to mix well.
  4. Add fish filets and shake gently until fish is coated all over.
  5. In a large skillet, heat butter or oil over medium heat until hot. Add filets to pan and cook 3 to 5 minutes on the first side, until nicely browned. Then gently flip and cook on the second side until fish flakes easily with a fork, another 3 to 5 minutes. (Total cooking time will depend on the thickness of your fish).
  6. Serve fish with a pat of Cilantro Lime Butter on top of each filet.
