    ColCadsMom's Note:

    I have never been a huge fan of fish, but this is a mild, simple and delicious tasting entree! I like to make it with tilapia as well. You could probably use any mild tasting white fish. I have also used dried cilantro when my store was out of fresh.

    1. 1
      Heat olive oil in a large oven proof skillet over medium high heat.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
    3. 3
      Season both sides of fish with salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Dredge only one side of each fillet in the cilantro.
    5. 5
      Place fish, cilantro side down, into the hot olive oil, being careful not to crowd the pan.
    6. 6
      Cook until cilantro is crisp, checking often not to burn. (I check after 1 minute, then every 30 seconds after that.).
    7. 7
      Turn fish over, then place in preheated oven.
    8. 8
      Bake for 3-5 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
    9. 9
      If you do not have a large oven proof skillet, you can cook fish a couple of fillets at a time, then transfer to a baking dish to finish cooking. You can use less oil or nonstick spray if using a nonstick pan, just remember to add more before adding more fish. Add extra cooking time since the dish is not preheated.

      This is a great recipe. Totally easy to make and works great over a bed of sauteed spinach. I added some bread crumbs which provided a nice crunch.

      Was nice for fish night to use with fresh cilantro. Needed something else though. Lemon, more seasoning?
