Here’s an easy method for quickly cooking fish fillets. We love the simplicity of just using salt and pepper to season the flour for dredging, but feel free to get creative and experiment with other seasonings. If you like a little heat, add a pinch of cayenne; for a smoky flavor, add a touch of smoked paprika; try white pepper, a common ingredient in Chinese cooking, instead of black pepper if you’re pairing the fish with the Black Bean-Scallion Sauce.

"This sounds delicious and very versatile. The amount of white flour remaining after dredging is negligible, and the oil is olive oil. This is still a healthy recipe. "

How about giving us a recipe for broiled white fish, which is much healthier without the flour batter and frying it in oil?


This is a very simple and easy way to eat fish. Tasty. Thanks for the reminder that uncomplicated is good.
