    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 4
    6 tbsp. butter, divided
    4 (4 to 6 oz each) Alaska pollock fillets, fresh, thawed or frozen
    salt and black pepper, to taste
    ½ c. chopped walnuts
    1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
    2 tsp. grated lemon zest
    1/4 to 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
    1 tbsp. snipped chives


    1. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
    2. Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska pollock fillets under cold water; pat dry with paper towel. Sauté 6 minutes per side for frozen fillets OR 3 minutes per side for fresh/thawed fish, turning once. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.
    3. Season fillets with salt and pepper. Remove fillets from skillet; keep warm. Wipe out pan, if necessary.
    4. Add walnuts to skillet; cook until walnuts are lightly toasted, shaking pan occasionally to prevent walnuts from burning. Add remaining ingredients and heat through.
    5. Spoon sauce over fish to serve.
