Fish Topped with Lemon-Garlic Anchovy Sauce



A good firm white fish is perfect for this recipe. I seasoned the fish fillets with olive oil, salt and pepper and baked them before topping them with the delicious sauce.


4 firm white fish fillets, baked or grilled

1 oz. drained and chopped anchovies

2 minced garlic cloves

1/4 c. olive oil

1 t. lemon zest

1 1/2 T. lemon juice

2 T. chopped parsley


Cook the fish until done.

In a small saucepan, combine the anchovies, garlic and olive oil. Cook and stir constantly until the anchovies are crushed and cooked into a paste, about 5 minutes.

Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon zest, lemon juice and parsley.

Spoon over the cooked fish and serve.



Simple Swordfish



This sauce is so fresh and tasty – and it would be great with any white fish.


2 swordfish fillets

1/4 c. olive oil

Juice from 1/2 lemon

Salt & pepper

Dried oregano or other dried herbs


Grill the fish fillets until done. Cook them quickly and don’t let them dry out.

While the fish is cooking, combine the rest of the ingredients in a bowl.

When the fish is done, remove it to a warm platter. Puncture it with a fork. Drizzle the sauce on top and serve.


Baked Cod Fish



This recipe would be great with any firm white fish – I just happened to find cod fish at Trader Joe’s and it was delicious.


2 lbs. cod fish

1/4 c butter, melted

Lemon rind to taste

Juice of 1 lemon

Chopped parsley

Chopped green onions

Flour for dredging


Preheat the oven to 350. Dry the fish fillets.

Dredge them in flour and place them in a greased baking dish.

Season with salt and pepper.

Combine the melted butter, lemon rind, and lemon juice in a bowl. Add the chopped parsley. Pour over the fish fillets.

Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

Sprinkle with chopped green onions and serve.

Mahi Mahi with Cilantro Butter



Simple and healthy – my kind of dinner! It’s important not to overcook the fish, but other than that, this is very easy.


1 lb. mahi mahi fillets

1/4 t. salt

1/4 t. cumin

1/8 t. red pepper flakes

1/2 lemon

2 T. butter, melted

2 T. chopped fresh cilantro

1/2 t. grated lemon rind


Combine salt, cumin, and red pepper flakes in a bowl. Sprinkle this over both sides of the fish.

In another bowl, melt the butter. Add the cilantro, lemon rind, and salt and mix well. Set aside until ready to use.

Heat a frying pan. Add some olive oil. When the pan is hot, place the fish in it. Cook it for about 4 minutes and turn over. Cook for another 4 minutes, or until the fish is done.

Serve the fish, topped with the cilantro/butter sauce. Squeeze some lemon juice over all of it.
