Lime Butter Fish With Easy Herb Pasta

Total Time - 15 minutes / Makes 4 Servings

Cooking Sequence

  • Prepare fish and begin to cook - 5 minutes
  • Prepare pasta and complete fish; serve - 10 minutes

Lime Butter Fish


1 1/2 lb tilapia (orange roughy or flounder) fillets (thawed, if needed)
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
1 lime (for zest and juice, rinsed)
1 shallot (rinsed)


  1. Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 2–3 minutes. Season both sides of fish with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper (wash hands).
  2. Place 1 tablespoon of the butter into pan; swirl to coat. Add fish (wash hands); cook 3–4 minutes on each side or until internal temperature reaches 145°F (or flesh is opaque and separates easily with a fork). Cook time may vary depending on the thickness of the fish.
  3. Meanwhile, cut remaining 4 tablespoons of the butter into small pieces; place in small bowl to soften. Peel several strips of lime peel, without any white pith, with zester (or vegetable peeler). Chop finely for zest (1 tablespoon); add to butter. Remove ends and peel from shallot; chop shallot finely and add to butter.
  4. Stir remaining 1/4 teaspoon each of the salt and pepper into softened butter mixture until well blended; chill until ready to serve.
  5. Squeeze juice of lime (1 tablespoon) over fish; remove fish from pan. Top fish with lime butter mixture and serve.

Aprons Advice

The lime butter can be made the night before; just allow it to soften while preparing the fish and pasta.
