Fish is a delicate meat and is cooked in just few minutes. When cooking fish, it’s best to use less amount of oil and spices, that way you can enjoy the flavor of the fish without masking it with other flavors.
How to Make Pan Fried Fish
To make a good pan fried fish, it has to be fillet, no bones and no skin. A good nonstick pan is essential, you don’t want the fish to stick to the pan and lose most of it.
Do not overcook the fish. Fish is a tender meat and people tend to overcook it, two to three minutes are usually enough to cook one side of the fish, maybe a little longer if the cut is thick.
As mentioned above a little amount of spices and a mixture of oil and butter to fry will give you the best pan fried fish!
