A lovely and light seafood dish that is ready in less then 15 minutes – serve with a basil sauce and a squeeze of lemon.
First, make the basil sauce. Bring a small saucepan of water to the boil and have a bowl of ice-cold water ready nearby. Add the basil leaves to the boiling water and blanch for 15 seconds. Remove and immediately plunge into the ice-cold water. Dry on paper towel, then place in a blender or food processor. Add the oil and some seasoning, then blend together.
Season the fish fillets and dust with flour. Set a saucepan over a medium heat and add 1tbsp oil. Add the fish to the pan and sear for 3-4 minutes each side. If the fillets are quite thick, cook for longer. Alternatively, cook the fish on the barbecue with a little oil, salt and pepper.
Arrange the fish on individual serving plates and drizzle over the basil sauce. Serve with lemon wedges to squeeze over.
