Quick and easy fish dish with creamy sauce. Serve this with my Cilantro Lemon Rice for a perfect meal. This recipes definitely a keeper!!!
2 Tbsp. olive oil
3-4 Tbsp. butter
1 cup fresh cream or heavy cream
2 cups chicken broth
Salt and black pepper to taste
1 tsp. paprika
1 Tbsp. Lemon juice
4 (about 1.5 lbs) Basa fillet or any other white fish
2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
3/4 cup all purpose flour- for the dredge
Cut fish into 2 inch squares. Season the fish with a little garlic salt and pepper. Dredge fish in flour.
Tap the excess flour off the fish. In a pan, heat the oil and butter until butter is melted. On medium heat pan fry the fish on each side until lightly browned.
Take off the fish from the pan and set aside. Add chicken broth into to the frying pan and cream. Season with salt and pepper; add paprika and lemon juice and bring it to a boil. Add fish into the sauce and let it simmer for 7-10 minutes.
The sauce will thicken as it cooks. If the sauce is too thick, add some more chicken stock or water to reach your desired sauce consistency.
Serve with Cilantro Lemon Rice, sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.
Tried it and the family loved it!
I was looking for something different to do with some cod I had bought and some left over cream I happened to have in the fridge and searched online for a recipe and discovered your recipe! It was fantastic and my husband really enjoyed it, thanks for the recipe!
Was looking for a creamy fish dish…perfect! Loved the rice, too. So flavorful.
Made this the other night, and it was absolutely amazing!…The entire family loved it…The rice on the other hand tasted was too lemony and unfortunately I had to toss it…It really wasn’t what I expected. On the other hand I feel if you put less lemon juice and 1tbsp of lemon rinds in it, it might just be a successful recipe. I instead ended up using minute rice, cooked in chicken broth, with a couple drops of lemon juice, no rinds, a pinch of garlic salt, and of course cilantro and it turned out absolutely perfect..It completed the meal and wasn’t overpowering in flavor. Loved it!
I made this dish yesterday and it became our family favorite. Thank you so much for posting it. I’m looking forward to your future posts.
Perfect flavor and very simple. Lovely all the way! Thank you
Love this recipe. Keep coming back to it, years later. Thanks for sharing!
