White fish is my one of my favorite kinds of fish. It has a mild taste that’s not overbearing. It has a tender delicate texture that just melts in your mouth.
White fish is such a tasty fish that I usually don’t feel a need to drown it in sauce. White fish is good on its own, sprinkled with salt and pepper.
Here’s a super simple and easy way to make white fish:
Easy Simple White Fish Recipe
Cooking time: 5 minute(s)
Number of servings (yield): 2
1 lb white fish fillets
2/3 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tbsp oil
Directions For Making White Fish:
Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Put the fish on the frying pan so the fillets are not touching each other. Sprinkle with 1/3 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp of pepper.
Cook the white fish for 3 minutes, then flip the fish fillets to the other side and sprinkle with another 1/3 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper. Cook for 2 minutes (or until the fish is cooked – opaque throughout and flakes easily with a fork).
Remove the white fish from the frying pan and serve. That’s how you get dinner on the table in 5 minutes :) This is the simplest fish recipe ever!
