Are you looking for a quick and easy meal that’s packed with flavor? Look no further than pan-seared fish filets! With just a few simple ingredients and some basic cooking skills, you can have a mouth-watering dish on your plate in no time.


  • Fish filets (any type will do, but we recommend catfish for this recipe)
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon of capers
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • Seafood seasoning blend

Step 1: Season the Fish

Begin by generously seasoning your fish filets with a seafood seasoning blend. This will give them a delicious flavor and help them brown nicely when cooked.

Step 2: Heat the Pan

Heat a pan to medium-high heat and add just enough olive oil to barely coat the pan. Add a couple of tablespoons of butter to the pan as well. Once the butter has melted and the pan is hot, it’s time to cook the fish.

Step 3: Cook the Fish

Place the seasoned fish filets in the pan and cook them for about 4-5 minutes on one side, until nicely browned. Add a squeeze of lemon juice and a teaspoonful of capers to the pan. Then, flip the fish over and cook for another 4-5 minutes on the other side, reducing the heat to medium.

Step 4: Add Some Flavor

While cooking the fish, add some sliced lemon to the pan to infuse the dish with even more flavor.

Step 5: Serve and Enjoy!

Once the fish is cooked through and nicely browned on both sides, it’s time to serve and enjoy! Pair it with a delicious tomato and arugula salad for a keto-friendly meal that’s sure to please.

In conclusion, pan-seared fish filets are a simple yet delicious meal that can be made in just a few easy steps. With the right ingredients and a little bit of know-how, you can create a dish that’s packed with flavor and sure to impress. So why not give it a try tonight?
