Pescado A La Plancha

Sautéed fish can be real healthy for you, particularly if you use olive oil. I marinate the fish in a citrus, garlic sauce, called Mojo. Any white fish will work like Tilapia, Orange Roughy, Snapper, the choice is yours. I do use a little butter to thicken the sauce. There is nothing wrong or unhealthy about butter. It is natural and a real food. I only use 1-tablespoon for a recipe that serves 4. Basically I have added 100 extras calories to all servings.
  Fish fillets 4 (Any White Fish Like, Tilapia, Orange Roughy)
  Bitter orange/2 parts lemon to 1 part orange juice 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Naranja Agria)
  Cumin 1 Teaspoon
  Oregano 1 Teaspoon
  Garlic 4 Clove (20 gm), crushed
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste
  Butter 1 Tablespoon
  Olive oil 1 Tablespoon

In a small mixig bowl whisk the naranja agria, cumin, oregano, crushed garlic, salt, and pepper.

Place the fillets in a baking dish and pour the marinade over the fish making sure each fillet is coated cover the fish with plastic wrap and refrigerate let the fish marinate for minimum of 2 hours.

Remove the fish from the marinade and pat dry. Reserve the marinate.

In a large skillet heat 1 tbsp of olive oil medium high heat until fragrant, reduce the heat to medium and saute the fillets for approx 4 to 5 minutes per side. Place the fish on a serving platter

Add butter and marinate to skillet, reduce by half and pour over fish.

Makes 4 servings

The flavors in this dish are amazing together. I used regular oj and lemon juice in place of the agria. I would recommend doubling the sauce. Excellent!
