I made the best fish I've ever eaten tonight.. by using a little imagination and something I've seen on TV a few times.. now I'm wondering is there an actual name for the technique of basting hot oil over something you are sauteing? Or is that just a basic technique that doesn't warrant a name? In case you are interested in the fish.. it was a very simple filet of tilapia, about 7 sprigs of thyme, a few tablespoons of good olive oil, and some salt and pepper. I heated the oil with the thyme in just until it popped a little in a small non stick skillet.. then placed the fish in the pan and moved a few of the thyme sprigs onto the top of the fish. I then used a spoon and tilted the pan, basting the hot olive oil over the thyme sprigs to impart that flavor until it was done. I use kosher salt and bathing the oil over it helped dissolve the salt into the oil so it was evenly seasoned. It was incredible.
