If you are unsure about judging when they are cooked, stick a thermometer into the thickest part and cook until it reaches 140°F (60°C).

Serve the fillets drizzled with the lemony butter, and with plain white rice, for example.

Remarks

"Meunière" or "à la meunière"? No real difference. The name simply refers to the small amount of flour ("meunier" means miller in French) used to coat the fish.

Keeping:

Should be eaten immediately.
