A favourite sauce

to eat with crumbed pan fried fish, can anyone share their favourite recipe. I'd love a change from tartare

From bite.co.nz is this recipe with a butter sauce at the bottom, is very nice.

Pan-fried fish
( SERVES 2 )

2 Fish fillets, such as snapper or any other fresh fish

1 cup Flour, for dusting

2 Eggs

2 Tbsp Butter

1 Lemon, cut into wedges to serve

1. Season the fish with salt on both sides then dip into flour, shaking off the excess.
2. Whisk the eggs then pour into a shallow dish.
3. Heat a large frying pan until hot, then use tongs to dip the fish into the egg, completely coating the fillets on both sides.
4. Add the butter to the pan, allow to melt, then add the fish. Cook until golden on both sides and serve on hot plates with wedges of lemon and simple butter sauce (see below).
Simple butter sauce for the fish
Once the fish is out of the pan, add an extra Tbsp butter, cook until it begins to bubble and go brown, add 1 Tbsp lemon juice and 1 Tbsp chopped parsley, some freshly ground pepper (capers are also great) and spoon over the cooked fish.

The sauce in this recipe works for me.

Coriander Seafood Sauce

500gms Pumpkin seeds
Large handful (about 25g) Coriander Leaves
150ml Sunflower Oil
Juice of 1 Lime
2 Shallots, Chopped
7g Parmesan, freshly grated
Salt & Pepper
Optional 1 hot green chilli chopped
(Any or All) 2 cloves garlic
Fresh ginger

Stick all ingredients into a blender and blend.(Note :I don’t tend to measure anything)

• Par fry/cook scallops/fish fillets/prawns then put into dish, cover with sauce and finish cooking by placing under grill
• Par fry/cook scallops/fish/prawns then add sauce to pan and stir through till finished cooking
• Could be used to stuff chicken breasts or used on chicken same as two methods above.

Or just use the sauce over cooked fish.

Also Chimchurri sauce varied to suit fish rather than meat.

Sometimes have this with pan fried crumbed blue cod, or roughy.
Lemon Herbed Butter Sauce for Fish.
Take ~ 1/2 cup butter. 2 tsp lemon zest. 1 tbsp chopped chives. 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley . 3 tsp dried thyme
Melt the butter in a small saucepan. Blend in all other ingredients and beat until smooth, spoon over either your pan fried or oven baked fish, serve with a nice crispy salad.
