Flavoured butters are a fast and easy way to dress up simple pan fried seafood, chicken and steaks. Try other combinations such as mustard and rosemary butter with barbecued beef steaks, lemon grass and chilli butter with grilled prawns or lemon and thyme butter with grilled chicken breast.


Step 1
In a small bowl, combine butter, lime zest, coriander and garlic. Mix well and season to taste.
Step 2
In a large non-stick frying pan, heat oil on high. Cook fish 2-3 minutes, each side, until flesh flakes when tested with a fork.
Step 3
Meanwhile, make noodle salad: In a large bowl, combine noodles, cucumber, carrot, coriander, onion and chilli. Dress with combined sauces and juice.
Step 4
Serve each fish portion topped with a dollop of flavoured butter and accompany with noodle salad.
