Chef Michael Brady shares a simple, delicious recipe for an easy meal you can make anytime.
Sauteed "Your favorite fish"
For the sautéed fish:
-1/4-6 oz. filet of your favorite fish
-Kosher salt, taste
-black pepper, fresh cracked
-grape seed oil, enough to spread on the bottom of your pan (does not need to swim in the pan)
1. heat pan on high for 2 min, add oil and then place seasoned filets (seasoned on both sides) in pan.
2. sauté, depending on the thickness for 3-6 minutes per side (a thin filet of Dover Sole may take 2-3 min per side and a think filet of grouper may take a solid 6 minutes and need to go in the oven for a couple of minutes)
3. You are going for consistent – golden brown on each side of the filets this is great for: appearance, texture and most importantly flavor .When you sear a protein or anything, you are using heat to pull sugars to the surface and you are cooking the waters out and caramelizing the sugars on the surface…. That's literally what the golden brown "sear" is when you grill, sauté etc. anything from a zucchini to a rib eye.
