    1. Pat the fish dry and spread a layer of mustard over the surface. Place the cracked pepper onto a plate, and press the coated fish into the pepper so it is well covered.
    2. Heat the olive oil and butter in a large frypan over medium-high heat. Fry the fish for 3 to 5 minutes on each side, or until fish flakes with a fork.

    I used stone ground mustard and black pepper and cayenne pepper. Who would have thought that mustard would taste good on fish? But it tasted succulent and not much like mustard at all. My wife was skeptical when I told her about the mustard, but she liked it.  -  01 Sep 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was excellent. I added a little paprika and cayenne pepper to spice it up a little more.  -  05 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Pretty good...used honey mustard and instead of pepper, used some Old World Central Street Seasoning from the Spice House.  -  12 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
