Ingredients to make Fish in Lemon Butter Sauce

  • Fish Fillets. I used Singhara (Cat Fish). You can use fish a
  • 2 lemons
  • 4 table spoons butter
  • salt as per taste
  • Black pepper
  • Half cup white wine.

How to make Fish in Lemon Butter Sauce

  1. First of all, season the fillets with salt and pepper. Rub the salt and pepper in so that flavors dig in.
  2. Now heat 1 table spoon oil in a pan.
  3. Cook fillets on both sides for about 3 minutes each on medium. This will ensure fillets are cooked through and evenly.
  4. Now take the pan off the heat and add white wine.
  5. Bring to heat again and reduce it to half to let the alcohol evaporate.
  6. Now add lemon juice and further reduce it to half.
  7. Now add butter and let it melt and mix with lemon and wine to make a nice sauce.
  8. Serve in a plate and garnish with fresh coriander or parsley.
  9. Final step, thank me!!

My Tip:

You can use Chicken Stalk as well to increase the quantity of sauce.
