Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk herbs, buttermilk, mayonnaise, pinch of salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the fish and cook, turning occasionally, until lightly browned on all sides and cooked through, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
