Pan-Seared Lemon-Herb Fish with Crispy Lemon Slices

Makes 2-4 servings


  • 1 lb white fish fillets (cod, tilapia, mahi-mahi, all work great)

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon Lemon-Herb Salt

  • 1 lemon, sliced thin

  • Fresh herbs of your choice (optional, for garnish)


  1. Season the Fish: Pat the fish fillets dry and season generously with the Lemon-Herb Salt on both sides.

  2. Heat the Oil: Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

  3. Sear the Fish: Add the fish fillets to the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Don't overcrowd the pan or the fish will steam instead of sear. Cook in batches if needed.

  4. Crisp Up the Lemon: While the fish cooks, add half the lemon slices to the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes per side, until slightly golden and crispy. Remove with tongs and set aside.

  5. Serve with Zest: Plate the cooked fish fillets and top with the crispy lemon slices. Squeeze fresh lemon juice from the remaining lemon slices over the fish for an extra burst of flavor. Garnish with fresh herbs of your choice, if desired.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Use a Cast Iron or Non-Stick Pan: This will help prevent the fish from sticking and make flipping easier.

  • Don't Overcook: The fish cooks quickly, so keep an eye on it to avoid drying it out.

  • Get Creative: Serve the fish with your favorite sides like roasted vegetables, rice, or quinoa.

  • Lemon Butter Sauce: If you want a richer sauce, melt a tablespoon of butter in the pan after cooking the fish and whisk in a tablespoon of lemon juice. Drizzle over the fish and lemon slices.

This recipe should keep it simple while still letting the bright and herbaceous flavors of the Lemon-Herb Salt shine through. Enjoy!
