Simple Fish Filets

But our favorite meal is fish fillets which we buy in the supermarkets with a fish counter. More and more supermarkets have fish counters these days and we take advantage of that to eat fish at least two or three times a week. I cook it very simply in the electric skillet outside to share the good smells with our neighbors and keep it out of the Roadtrek.

In an hot skillet I melt about two teaspoons of REAL butter, spread it over the bottom of the skillet to coat. Add the fish fillets and cook about three minutes on each side, just until the fish stops being translucent. No breading or anything but the naked fillet in butter. No cheating and using margarine. Does not taste good. Sometimes with very thick fillets I put the lid on the skillet and let them cook for a few minutes longer just to be sure they are done. But as you know, cooking fish too long makes it dry and nasty to eat.

You may notice that some of our recipes do not contain exact measurements for all ingredients. Cooking on the road is an art more than a science. We view each recipe as only a suggestion - a starting point for your own personal creativity.

We aren't usually dealing with food chemistry in these recipes since we aren't baking with leavening, etc., so feel free to use as much or as little of any suggested ingredient. Be creative and imaginative! Substitute the foods you like or have available for the ones in the recipes. And if you find something that turns out well for you, please share it with the rest of us.
