  • 4 teaspoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 1 pinch freshly ground black pepper

  1. ‍In a small mixing bowl, combine cabbage, fresh squeezed lime juice and cilantro. Mix well and allow to sit at room temperature while you complete the rest of the preparation.
  2. Portion the fish into 8 equal pieces. Season lightly on both sides with salt and pepper.
  3. Preheat an oven safe sauté pan (stainless steel, no plastic handle) on high heat until fully heated; preheat oven to 450F.
  4. Add just enough canola, olive or avocado oil to the pan to lightly coat the bottom, then carefully place the fish in the pan and sauté for about two minutes per side, then place the whole sauté pan in the pre-heated oven and bake until cooked through , 8-10 minutes. Remove fish from oven and let it rest for 2-3 minutes.
