1/3 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons lime
2 cloves garlic, crushed
sea salt and ground pepper
2 tablespoons drained capers
1 red onion, very thinly sliced
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
Olive oil and a knob of butter for cooking
Sea salt and ground pepper
750 grams Basa fish fillets
Dressing: Whisk the oil, lime and garlic together in a bowl and season generously. Stir in the capers, onion and parsley. Set aside while you cook the fish, stirring occasionally.
Fish: Heat the oil and butter in a large sauté pan. Season the fish and cook on both sides until golden and just cooked through. Do this in batches if needed. Drain on kitchen towels then transfer to a large lipped platter.
To serve: Spoon the dressing over the fish and leave to sit for 15 minutes for the flavors to mingle.
