Lemon Butter Sauce for Fish

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by elainegl

This was the first way I learned to cook fish. My favorite fish for this is tilipia, but any white fish filets would work. It is perfect with rice and a green vegetable. I found a website that has a picture of the Knorr seasoning (it doesn't seem to have Swiss in the name anymore). You can see a picture of it here: http://www.germandeli.com/048001704022.html

I used the same ingredients but cooked it a different way. The fish came out tender and had a delicious distinctly buttery taste. I melted the butter in a skilet, sauted garlic about 20 seconds, added the other ingredients (I did not use wine) plus some zest from the lemon. I added the fish, turned to coat, and then cooked for 20-30 minutes. I cooked it covered, but with a slight vent in the cover so that the extra moisture could escape and the sauce reduced. I added this to my permanent recipe collection and will definately be making it again.
