The Ardent Epicure

An Ode to the Pleasures of Food

Moonfish in Chili Lemon Sauce
 and a Giveaway

This wonderful dish was adapted from a fantastic cookbook written and
photographed by my dear friend Nancy "An Epiphany of the Senses"
The original recipe calls for Pangasius which is a catfish, that Nancy describes
 as both tasty and inexpensive. I did not have catfish available but
 substituted it with Moonfish or Opah Fillets

Adapted from An Epiphany of the Senses recipe
for Pangasius in Chili Lemon Sauce.

 What you will need:
4 thin Pangasius fish fillets
(I used 2 lbs Opah/Moonfish)
3 whole lemons juiced
3 teaspoons granulated garlic
(I used minced garlic)
1 teaspoon chili powder, or to taste
(I used cayenne)
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Let's get cooking:
In a small bowl combine chili powder and garlic with lemon juice, salt and
pepper as desired. Heat oil in a large Sauté until hot, add fish and cook for 7 minutes
more or less depending on thickness and type. Turn fish then pour the lemon juice
mixture over fish. Cover and cook additional 7 minutes or until done.
Serve with rice or other side dish...Serves 4
