Suzy's Swai Meuniere (Swai in Lemon Butter Sauce)
Ingredients16 m servings 295
- Whisk lemon juice and lemon zest together in a bowl. Mix flour, salt, and pepper together in a resealable gallon-size plastic bag.
- Pat swai fish fillets dry with a paper towel; lightly season 1 side of each fillet with salt. Place fillets in the bag with flour mixture, 1 at a time, and shake to coat.
- Heat a large skillet over medium heat; add butter and heat until lightly browned. Place coated fish fillets in the browned butter; cook until lightly browned on the edges and fish flakes easily with a fork, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer fish to a plate, reserving butter in the skillet.
- Pour lemon juice mixture into skillet with reserved butter; cook and stir until a light sauce forms, 2 to 3 minutes. Spoon sauce over fish and garnish with parsley.
- Cook's Note:
- Lemon juice and lemon zest should be at room temperature.

this is an incredibly simple recipe and so good. I made it with Dover Sole.

This was easy and delicious. I will make it again but will use 1/8 cup of lemon juice instead of 1/4 cup. Everything else was perfect!

This is a great recipe. Quick and easy and delicious! I served it over couscous with fresh snap beans and smothered squash.
