Quick and Easy Baon | Cream Dory in Lemon Butter Sauce

I've always been afraid of cooking fish. It's because takot akong matalsikan ng mantika! So I'm gonna start cooking fish using the easiest to prepare, Cream Dory. Cream Dory is  very accessible ingredient in the supermarket, usually filleted and frozen or thawed. The most common dish for Dory is pan-fried or steamed with sauce.

I was afraid it would be very malansa. But Jay and one of my officemates approved its taste! So here we go!

  1. Melt butter in a pan for about 3 minutes, with continuous whisking, until brown, but don't overcook.

  1. Yummmmm! I have tasted one of these when I attended a special occassion. Ive been wondering how to make it but all i see are very complicated guides. Glad yours is not. Thanks for this!

  2. i am tired of chicken, pork and beef these days... tamang-tama i am here. I will definitely do this tonight. I really planned to cook fish but I was looking for variety on how to cook it.

  3. At first I though it was chicken, fish pala. Looks so yummy. Wanna try kaso wala yata kaming cream dory dito. Pwede din ung salmon di ba?

  4. Si mama naghahanap ng mga pwedeng lutuin...ipapatry ko ito sa kanya. Pwede kahit hindi cream dory? Salmon meron kami sa ref. Haha..

  5. Looks delicious. We just always do breaded cream dory, good thing I've found this! Will try this recipe next time. Thank you.

  6. This is a very simple recipe, but it works. We tend to always buy cream dory in the grocery too, but never think of new people ways to cook it. This is definitely something I have to try!!

  7. momsh! ang sarap! at ang dali lang gawin!! sana makalabas ako to buy pang ulam bukas!
