Simple Easy Braised Fish Fillet

In case you are wracking your brain as to what to do with the frozen fish fillets you have, here is a simple recipe with four ingredients.  Though salt is not usually counted I did in this case since I used seasoned salt.

The seasoned salt removes the guesswork as to what flavoring to use to enhance the taste of the fish. The garlic and onion flakes give that extra zing to this dish without any tedious peeling and chopping involved. This combo of seasoning flakes upon being cooked also serves as an attractive and delicious topping to the dish.

A quick and easy dinner. A potential reliable crowd pleaser.  How do I know that? My picky taster, my husband, gave it two thumbs up.  If he likes something then a crowd would.

This was what I served my husband for our anniversary dinner last night with mac and cheese and steamed mixed vegetables. I figured after having steak at Applebees the day before he would want something lighter but good.  This dinner did not fail. Sssh. This is also a healthy dinner. No deep frying. No pan frying either. Yes just embrace braising. No pun intended.

Simple Easy Braised Fish Fillet

  • 2 pieces fish fillet (used frozen swai)
  • water
  • seasoned salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tbsp dry onion flakes
  • 1/2 tbsp dry garlic flakes

In a saute pan, place the fish and add just enough water to reach below the surface of the fish. Sprinkle the seasoned salt and pepper to the surface of the fish.

Allow to boil and then add the dry onions and garlic. Let it simmer till fish is half done, then flip the fish and season this other side with seasoned salt and black pepper.

Continue to cook the fish, allowing most of the liquid to evaporate leaving a bit on the pan as sauce. Delicious!
