Ingredients
  

  • 4-6 fillets of firm white fish such as tilapia bass, catfish, or perch
  • 2 tablespoons flour optional
  • 1 clarified butter
  • 6 garlic cloves thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons parsley finely chopped
  • 1 juice of one lime
  • 1 additional lime wedges
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil or a mix of half olive oil and half vegetable oil

Instructions
 

  • Season fish: Drizzle the fish with lime juice, sprinkle with salt. Set aside and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Use only Clarified butter (don’t think of using margarine)
  • Dust the fillets lightly with flour. Meanwhile, heat some of the clarified butter in a frying pan until hot but not smoking. Saute the fish until lightly browned (some Mexican cooks fry fish until it is the approximate consistancy of our potato chips , but this is taking authenticity a bit too far
  • Remove the fish from the pan, and add additional butter if needed (you will want about 2-3 Tbsp. of melted butter per fillet to sauce the finished dish). Add garlic to the pan and saute garlic until it is a light brown color.
  • Do not allow it to burn, but do allow the garlic to take on some color and become slightly crisp. Squeeze in the lime juice.
  • Remove this from the frying pan and place on a cooling rack with paper towel underneath to absorb any excess fat. To serve, garnish with the chopped parsley and golden garlic slices. (And if you add a little dab of butter, oh heavens!)
  • Pour the hot butter/garlic mixture over the fish, and serve.
  • This dish is quite common in Southern Mexico
    Traditionally would be served with black beans (either whole or refried); perhaps a simple dish of rice, cooked in chicken broth with chopped cilantro and a few diced green chiles; a side relish of homemade fresh salsa
