Best Pan-Seared Fish in Johor Bahru (JB)

Written by Updated ago

Searing a fish could appear very simple and straightforward yet it draws a fine line between ruining a delicate fish and gentrifying it. The goal is to result in a golden-brown crust skin perching above juicy and moist fish below, paired with scrumptious sauces and smatterings of greens. From modest to magnificent, Johor Bahru has various winners of perfect pan seared fish to pleasure your palate and eyes.

    Pots & Pans

    Framed with a wooden backdrop and housing comfy tables and chairs, Pots & Pans is a joy for those hearty and comfort food hunters. Among the merit holders on the menu is their Pan Seared Fish with lemon butter sauce. The fish with a crackling crust and flaky flesh sits on a bed of mashed potatoes, lounging in an ocean of bright-creamy sauce and sprinkle of chopped herbs. The slightest prod for the fork is enough to tear down the fresh catch of the day.
