This is a easy to make dish for fish lovers which is low in calories and can be served as an appetizer in any party.Unfortunately I could not get basil leaves in the market and was compelled to try a substitution with lemon zest which came out to be a winner.The pan fried lemon pepper fish is soft and is full of flavor from lemon.You can definitely impress your guests with this tasty dish.
