"What is special about Fisher is not the tedious stuff about six teaspoons of dry mustard, but the literary dressing around the sides of the recipes."
-Philip Howard, Author
The one key to this recipe is that the pan must be very hot because the egg wash sears onto the fish when it hits the pan. Timing is everything in making the perfect fish recipe. Have the fish ready and already coated on one side. Remove the pan from the oven add the oil and swirl it around the pan. Coat the other side of the filets and add them to the pan quickly.
There have been numerous studies that show a reduction of risk in fatal heart attacks when men eat fish. In a study in the Journal of American Medical Association, researchers reported similar protection for women, showing that eating fish about once a week reduces the risk for fatal heart attack by at least 1/3. Eating fish more often reduces the risk even further, with having fish 2 – 4 times per week cutting the risk by over 40%.
These results were independent of the study’s participants use of other foods that might also prevent heart disease, such as fiber, differences in intake of red meat, fruits and vegetables or lower saturated fat diets.

|3 tsp||olive oil|
|2 tsp||Dijon mustard|
|1 Tbsp||dried sage|
|fresh ground black pepper|
|2 4 ounce||whitefish filets (trout, cod, drum, or tilapia)|

Place a large skillet in the oven and preheat to 400°F.
While the oven is preheating rinse the fish filets and pat dry with a paper towel.
When the oven is hot add the remaining 2 teaspoons of olive oil to the pan. Dredge both sides of the fish in the mustard coating and place them in the hot pan.
Return the pan to the oven and cook for about 4 minutes on the first side. Turn the fish over. Change the setting of the oven to broil and cook for about another 3 - 4 minutes. Serve.
