1. Wash and clean the fish. Pat dry with paper towel. This recipe works well with cat fish, Tilapia, and dory fish.
2. Add the butter and olive oil to skillet over low heat. Butter and olive oil burn under high heat. Sprinkle salt and pepper on side of fish with no skin. Place the skinless side down into the oil. Sprinkle salt and pepper on skin side. One side may take between five and ten minutes to cook depending on thickness.
3. Carefully flip fish and cook the other side. You may have to cut in center of one of the fish to determine whether fish is fully cooked. Sprinkle the thyme and basil on top.
Tip: Fresh herbs really bring out the flavor.
