A simple and tasty way to prepare mild flavored fish. I've included the marinating time in the prep time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a skillet melt 1 Tbs of butter over medium heat, add garlic, and sauté 'til tender (watch carefully so that it doesn't burn!).
  2. Remove from heat and stir in teriyaki sauce, lemon juice, honey and sesame seeds.
  3. Let cool a few minutes then pour over fish and marinate 30 minutes in refrigerator.
  4. Heat remaining Tbs of butter in skillet over medium heat.
  5. Remove fish from marinade and add to pan, sautéing 4-5 minutes per side and basting with marinade.
  6. Note: I like to toast the sesame seeds before adding them to the mixture for a more pronounced flavor.

My husband liked this, wants me to try in on his Salmon (which I hate) I followed the recipe and just felt it was missing something.

This recipe was good. Made with ingredients I keep on hand so that was a plus!! You really have to watch this towards the end or the marinade you baste with will burn. I want to try this marinade on salmon.
