We loved this buttery, flavorful sauce and it makes the fish so pretty, too. (I saw something like this on Irish Food Trails some time ago and have recreated it as closely as I could recall. The measurements are all estimated.)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sautee the fish in the olive oil over medium heat until cooked through, adding salt and pepper to taste. This will take 1-4 minutes per side. Remove to a plate.
  2. Make a sauce by adding a good dollop of butter and the juice of a lemon to the pan. Stir it around, loosening all the crispy bits in the bottom of the pan and allowing it to thicken a bit.
  3. Add a handful of cherry tomatoes, halved and cook just until they are warmed through and begin to break down, adding their juices to the sauce.
  4. Top the plated fish with the gorgeous orange, buttery, lemony sauce you just made and the tomatoes and eat it up.
