You can use whatever fish you want, but it's best to use a fillet instead of a whole fish. I like red snapper or halibut. It's okay if the skin is still on the fish. Just cook with the skin side up first. Supposedly it helps to seal in flavor and juices.
First, Melt the butter in the microwave for 20 seconds. Brush the fish with the melted butter until it is completely covered in butter. Put as much Old Bay Seasoning as possible all over the fish. Drizzle olive oil in a cast iron pan, enameled cast iron pan, or use whatever pan you've got.
Place the fish in the pan over medium high heat. It should sizzle right away. Cook for about six minutes or until golden brown on one side. Don't try to scrape the fish off the pan, it will lift off easily when it is ready. Flip it over and cook for another six minutes. Check regularly that the fish is not burning or give it more time if it is not ready yet.
Put it on a plate and enjoy. A bachelor's life ain't so bad after all.
Spring for a fish spatula at the kitchen store. You'll thank me later.
