Simple Seared Opah



Last week, I found fresh Opah from Hawaii at my local Costco. It was so beautiful and fresh that I had to have it! Opah is such a flavorful fish that I didn’t want to frilly it all up with sauces, etc. In my opinion, Opah is a lot more flavorful and moist than swordfish.


1/2 lemon

1 lb. opah fillet

Salt & pepper

Olive oil


Squeeze the lemon juice all over the fish. Salt & pepper both sides. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan.

Sear both sides of the fish for about 3-4 minutes per side (or until barely cooked through).
