LEMONY BUTTER GRILLED FISH



Fish curry rice  is one of my family's favourite  dish, we cook fish  very often.Fish is light, healthy, full of vitamins and minerals, and omega-3 fatty acids. My daughter finish  her meal if there is some  fish preparation.

 We usually like river  waters fish, but here in Pune we do not get so many river water fishes...so now  we cook some fresh sea fish  also. Few days back,I bought some fish fillets, and my daughter wanted to have something different...so I tried this recipe. This wonderful recipe will make your mouth water when you have a bite of this lemon butter spiced fillets This method is one of the easiest, for whenever grilling outside is not possible. It is also very healthy as it needs less oil..and fishes are not getting  fried here.

First we will  grill the fillets then pour  lemon butter sauce over those grilled fillets.

  1. A simple yet flavour loaded citrusy, garlicky gorgeous sauce to lap up the fish and drench it in all these layers of flavours. Sometimes such clear flavours can do wonders on the palette and this is one perfect example of that. Loved it dear.
