3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons fresh herbs, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lemon, juiced
Lightly season the perch fillets with salt and pepper. Coat them in the flour and shake off the excess. Heat up 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the fillets and cook on both sides for about 4 minutes per side until lightly golden brown. Remove to serving plates and keep warm.
Herb Butter Sauce
Remove any burnt tid bits from the pan. Add the lemon juice, garlic and herbs, and cook until it has reduced down to nearly dry. Remove the pan from the heat source and stir in the butter until thoroughly melted. Season with salt and a generous pinch of pepper. Pour the sauce over the perch fillets and serve.
