[RECIPE] Dory Fish with Lemon Butter Sauce

Just last week I bought frozen Dory at Kemchick (IDR 52K), and I got two large Dory fillets. Since I’m avoiding fried foods, so I cooked Dory Fish with Lemon Sauce, which is very simple and easy to make at home. I made this for dinner yesterday, and I’m glad to know that they all loved it! That’s why here I will share the recipe with you, and I provide step-by-step that easy to follow on the video. This recipe is for 2-3 persons.

    • Hallo Tania, thank you for visiting our web. It’s easy, you can find it in the traditional market. Ke pasar2 tradisional adanya Tan, di pasar Puri, pasar Tanjung Duren, etc.. Rata2 di pasar gitu ada, kalau di supermarket memang gak jual.. 🙂
