  • 2 fish fillets

  • 30 gm salted butter

  • powdered black pepper as required

  • 2 teaspoon rosemary leaves

  • 20 gm all purpose flour

  • 1 lemon

  • salt as required


  • ​Add handful fresh parsley leaves


  • To prepare this main dish recipe, firstly, make sure that the fish fillets are dry. If not, use absorbent paper to remove the moistness from the fillets. Now, in a bowl, combine flour along with fish fillets. Coat the fillets with a very thin layer of flour.

  • Now, place a pan over medium flame and melt half of the salted butter in it. When the butter has melted, place the coated fillets in the pan and sprinkle some salt along with black pepper powder over it. Let both the sides cook until it turns golden brown and the crust becomes crispy. Once done, take these fillets off the flame and place them on a plate. Place the same pan over medium flame.

  • Add the remaining butter in it and let it melt. Once the butter has melted, squeeze a lemon in it and mix the juice with the melted butter. Now, add the rosemary leaves in it and mix well. Once the sauce has thickened, take it off the flame and pour this over the fillets in the plate. Serve this hot with some steamed beans or mashed potatoes to enjoy!
