Home > Recipes > Cobia Recipes > Lemon Butter Cobia


  • 2 cobia fillets, 5oz each with skin and bones removed
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 4 tbsp butter, unsalted
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • salt (to taste)
  • black pepper (to taste)
  • lemon wedges (for garnish)
  • freshly chopped parsley (for garnish)


  1. Add butter to skillet over medium heat. Melt and stir butter for about 3 minutes until it smells nutty and turns golden brown. Remove and pour into a bowl. Add lemon juice to the melted butter. Add salt and pepper to taste. Adjust accordingly (more lemon juice or salt and pepper) then set aside.
  2. Use a paper towel and pat dry cobia fillet. Season with salt and pepper, then add flour and rub evenly. Do the same for the other side.
  3. Add oil to skillet over high heat. Once the oil is hot enough and starting to smoke, add fish and cook till edges are golden, about 1½ minutes. Carefully flip and cook through. Fish should be flaky when forked. Transfer to serving plates.
  4. Add around 1 tbsp of lemon butter to fish and garnish with lemon wedges and freshly chopped parsley. Serve and enjoy!
