This is a very easy method to make any type of fish fillets. Choose mild-flavored fish - flounder, halibut, cod, catfish, or tilapia are great candidates.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Wash fish fillets under running cold water and dry with a paper towel. Drizzle with lemon juice and season with salt on both sides.

  • Combine flour and Chinese five-spice powder in a shallow bowl. Dip fish fillets into the flour mixture so they are covered on both sides.

  • Heat canola and sesame oils in a large skillet over medium heat. Add fish to hot oil and pan-fry for 2 to 3 minutes. Carefully turn and continue cooking until fish flakes easily with a fork, 2 to 3 minutes more.

Cook's Notes:

I use 2 spatulas to turn the fish.

Instead of salt, you can also marinate the fish in fish sauce for a little bit before pan-frying.
