Sauteed Fish with Zesty Orange and Soy

by ADMIN on JUNE 28, 2012

Cooking fish can be pretty daunting. How long do I cook it for? What kind should I use? How do I flavor it?

Well let me put your mind at ease: This recipe is easy as pie. No not fish pie. Not chocolate either. It was just a saying. Let’s just move on…

For this recipe, simply choose your favorite white fish (cod, tilapia, flounder, sole, etc), break out a large sautee pan – and then throw all the ingredients in to cook!

Ok fine… the recipe is a little more involved than that. But not much!
