Gulf Coast Garlic Butter Wine Fish


  • 4 mild fish fillets I usually use flounder or tilapia
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 dash olive oil I make my own but unflavored is fine
  • 3 -4 garlic cloves more or less to your taste
  • 1/2 cup good white wine not too sweet
  • 1/2 lemon
  • lemon pepper
  • salt add other seasonings to your taste
  • your favorite mix herbs I like rosemary and oregano


  • Melt butter in skillet with oil. Add garlic, cook maybe 2 min on medium heat.
  • Add the fillets, don't crowd them. Depending on your skillet and fillet size, I usually only do 2 at a time.
  • Sprinkle seasonings on one side and add herbs to the butter. Add wine and lemon juice now. Cook maybe 5 minute.
  • Now flip over and sprinkle other side with seasonings. cook 5 more minute or till flakes with a fork easily.
  • Repeat with other fillets. Add more butter and wine if sauce looks like it is disappearing.
  • Enjoy!
