  • Meanwhile, pat fish dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high. Add fish and cook until lightly browned on one side, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until lightly browned and opaque throughout, 3 minutes more. Serve fish with vegetables and lime wedges.

Cook's Notes

Use any firm white-fleshed fish, such as cod, halibut, or mahi-mahi.

Quick & easy, but unfortunately not that successful. After an hour in the oven, the beets were still hard, so I transferred them to a covered dish and microwaved them to finish the cooking. Fish was good, but pan-frying fish with salt and pepper is hardly original - plain and simple is fine, but paired with the failed beets, unimpressive.

The seared fish was good and very tasty. But that may have been because of the Hawaiian Chilli water I added to it. Overall it was a good dish but not wow worthy. In the future I will steam the broccoli to avoid the after effects.
