  • 12 oz. firm white fish fillet (halibut, cod or pollock fillet)
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • 3 dashes cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • lemon wedges
  • 1/2 stick salted butter, melted (4 tablespoons)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley


  • Cut the fish into pieces, not to thin for easy pan-frying. Season the fish with salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper. Coat the fish with corn starch. Set aside.

  • Prepare the Garlic Butter Sauce by mixing all the ingredients together. Set aside.

  • Heat up a skillet (preferably non-stick) on medium heat. Add the cooking oil and once the oil is heated, pan-fry the fish in a single layer until both sides turn crispy and golden brown. Use a wooden spatula or tong to gently flip the fish over. Try not to break the fish.

  • Remove the fish from the skillet and drain on paper towels. Toss the fish with the Garlic Butter Sauce and serve immediately with lemon wedges.
