This was so super easy and quick to make! And restaurant worthy to say the least. I would definitely serve it to company with a side of risotto. I used real Reggiano parmesan with Basa fillets. The DH took one bite and asked me to make it again soon. Thanks for a keeper!

Very tasty and quick dish. I used grouper and browned it in olive oil, and then placed it in the oven at 375 until it reached 120 degrees, after which I added the Parmesan cheese and placed it back in the oven until it reached 145 degrees. I then used the skillet to prepare the piccata sauce, which I finished with about 1 T. of butter. I served it over roasted zucchini. I would definitely make this again, and haven't met a piccata sauce I don't like!
