Notes

Use fresh fish! Living in Wisconsin, the struggle is real to find fresh, sustainable fish in my area. I have one grocery store that I love to get my fresh wild caught fish from. Check out your local spots and find one that provides fresh, wild caught fish!

Don’t overcook the fish. There’s nothing worse than a rubbery fillet of overcooked fish. Check the fish after about 10 minutes and see if the thickest part flakes easily with a fork. Check every couple minutes after that until the fish is tender and flaky.

Season. Season. Season. Make sure you use plenty of salt in the seasoning of the fish! The ingredients are so simple in this dish and the salt is going to boost all those flavors to another level.
