Herbed Fresh Fried Fish

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. A simple method for frying any fresh fish of the season. Monet grew lots of fresh herbs in his garden. Serve with Sauteed Fresh Mushrooms for a special dinner!

2-4 fresh fish fillets, such as sole, cod, grenadier, etc.
2 tablespoons fish seasoning, such as a combination of dried herbs like oregano, basil, thyme, and paprika
1/2 cup flour seasoned with a little sea salt
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1- 2 cloves garlic, sliced
1 small shallot, finely minced
fresh parsley or other herbs, for garnish

Season the fish pieces on all sides very well with the fish seasonings. Then dip into the flour, and then into the beaten egg, and then back into the flour. In meantime, heat heavy bottomed skillet 30 seconds, add the butter and oil, and then add the garlic and shallot and cook just until they start to turn soft. Quickly add the coated fish and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side. Garnish and serve.
