"I think fish is nice, but then I think that rain is wet, so who am I to judge?"
-Douglas Adams, Author
Meunière is a lovely French term which comes from "à la meunière," literally, "in the manner of a miller's wife," meaning a light dusting of flour. In practical terms it means rolled lightly in flour and sautéed in butter. This is a classic French dish, which is not only tasty, but dead simple. Any fairly firm white fish lends itself well to this technique.
Using frozen fish fillets tends to make this a very budget friendly dish. While fresh fish is lovely, if you live inland the price and the carbon footprint both should make you take a second look at frozen fish.
