This is a pretty basic recipe but it is just delicious! You can use lemon pepper in place of black pepper.

Very good, easy and fast! I used rice flour to get an even brown without overcooking the fish and only a dash of salt. Excellent dinner! Thanks for sharing!

My grocery store did not have any sole filets, so I used Tilapia. The simple recipes always seem to be the best. We enjoyed this very much. Added a small handful of sliced almonds to the butter and sauteed them before adding the lemon juice. Wonderful! Thanks Kit.
