– Season the fish with the salt, pepper, and lime juice, then lightly dust with the flour, patting it on to coat the fish. The flour will help prevent the fish from breaking or sticking to the pan while cooking. Dust off any excess flour.
– Heat the 2 Tablespoon of oil in a large nonstick skillet at medium-high. Add the garlic slices and fry until golden.
– Once the garlic has a golden color, remove the garlic slices. Place the filets in the skillet (avoid crowding the pan). Cook until firm. This step will take between 2 to 4 minutes depending on the thickness of the filet. Repeat this step with the remaining filets if not all of them fit at once.
– Once each filet is cooked, transfer to a large dish and cover loosely with aluminum foil to keep warm or place in a warm oven while you prepare the salsa (which will take just a few minutes). Or better yet, you can start the salsa while the filets are cooking.
