    Really simple recipe. The fish turned out awesome. Used less butter than asked for and coated the fish in cornflour

    Delicious! I added some olive oil to the butter to fry the fillets. It helps prevent the butter from burning and turning black. Also, I turned off the burner when I flipped the fish. Again, this prevents burning. When you cook at high heat with butter, you need to be careful as it burns really quickly. BTW, for those who are not so experienced, high heat does not necessarily mean "max". It depends of the stove and the kind of pan you use i.e. a cast iron pan can sustain much higher heat than a t-fal. When you notice it starts smoking, remove the pan from the heat and continue cooking your fish. Don't be afraid to add butter/oil. or to turn your fish earlier than 2 minutes. The best advice I can give to anyone starting to cook is do not rely 100% on a recipe. Use your nose and your eyes. Tasting most foods as they cook is also a must so you can adjust seasonings. Also a good dose of common sense is helpful. Experiment and have fun in the kitchen! This recipe goes very well with a nice Chardonnay!
