Ingredients

  • ½

    tbs freshly ground pepper

  • ½

    tsp paprika

  • ½

    tsp dried thyme

  • ¼

    tsp dry mustard

  • ¼

    tsp kosher salt

  • tsp ground cayenne

  • 1

    lb tilapia or sole fillets (about 4 fillets)

  • 2

    tbs plus 2 tsp olive oil

  • 2

    tbs unsalted butter

  • 1

    tbs fresh lemon juice, more to taste

Directions

in a bowl, combine the pepper, paprika, thyme, mustard, salt and cayenne. brush both sides of the fish with 2 tsp of the oil and gently rub the spice mix all over the fish. in a small skillet, heat the butter over medium high heat, swirling the skillet, until the butter is a deep amber brown, about 3 mins; watch carefully to be sure it doesn't burn. whisk in the lemon juice and keep warm. set a heavy nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and heat 1 tbs of the oil. when the oil is hot, add two of the fillets and sear until cooked through, about 2 mins per side; transfer to a plate and tent with foil. Wipe out the pan and repeat with the remaining oil and fish. Serve immediately, spooning the butter over the fish.
