Sautéed fish became blackened fish... Help needed!

Kleraudio | Nov 4, 2013 06:32 PM

So I want to start eating more fish. I found a basic fish taco recipe here on chow and had at it.

I used a non stick Calphalon fry pan as I don't trust my skills with fish on SS :)

Anywho medium high until pan is hot. Added a 1/2 tbsp of oil and in goes the marinated fish. 3 minutes and LOTS of splatter I flip it to find the fish is basically burnt. 2 more minutes and other side is burnt. Fish tasted ok but NOT golden brown and delicious.

Where did I go wrong?

Also is there a way to not make a friggin oil mess every time I sauté something?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
