I generally like to bake unbreaded fish dishes, but in thesummer a hot oven is undesireable. I like searing in a non stick skillet it works, it is quick, and it is delicious.

    cook, uncovered on medium heat, don't get to anxious, do NOT turn fish until one side is nicely seared. (lift up edge with spatula and peek ) . If you turn it too often, fillets will fall apart.

    do keep the onions moving, so they don't burn, and if you need to, add another teaspoon of oil. If onions are browning too quickly, lay them on the fillets

    check fish after 10 minutes for crispness on underside and turn fillets over. Cook another 10 minutes or until fish is seared well and the flesh is nice and white.
