Pan-Fried Fish Fillet

Pan-Fried Fish Fillet


  • 5 tilapia fillets
  • 2 teaspoons lemon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon butter 
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil 
  • 2 lemons


  1. Begin by seasoning both sides of each fillet.
  2. Cut the first lemon into slices to lay on top of each fillet.
  3. Heat a pan large enough to fit 5 fillets, adding half of the butter and half of the olive oil.
  4. Squeeze half a lemon over each side as it cooks.
  5. Once the first side has turned golden, turn over and cook on the other side. Add the remaining olive oil and butter.
  6. Add the lemon slices to each fillet once they are almost done cooking, allowing them to sit until the slices soften slightly before removing from heat.
  7. Serve while hot.
