Easiest Fish Recipes

Two unbelievably easy, delicious and healthy fish recipes:

Black Cod Fillets with Prosciutto

Just season 5-oz black cod fillets with salt and pepper, wrap them with thinly sliced prosciutto, and saute in a little butter for 3 minutes a side, preferably in a non-stick pan. Prosciutto will be crispy and the fish moist and delicious. Any other mild white relatively flaky fish may be substituted, for example regular cod or daurade (sea bream).

Sole or Flounder Sandwiches

Season a 3-4 oz. sole fillets with salt and pepper, then sprinkle with a light coating of flour (I recommend Wondra because you can get a very thin layer). Saute in a non-stick pan with a little butter for about 2 minutes on one side and a minute more on the other. Place on a warm roll (I prefer ciabatta but a kaiser, a slice baguette or anything else will do), sprinkle with a few drops of lemon juice and, if you like (I do), a few drops of tabasco sauce. Delicious and amazingly sweet. I love this with lemon sole because the fillets are so thin, but any sole, or even fluke or flounder, will do nicely. You could put mayo or tartar sauce on the roll if you want, but I find it moist enough without.
