  4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add a drizzle of olive oil.Once the skillet is hot, add the Basa fillets, skin side down, and cook for about 3-4 minutes, or until the skin is golden and crispy.
  5. Carefully flip the fillets using a spatula and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
  6. Transfer the cooked Basa fillets to serving plates. Top each fillet with a generous dollop of Sweet Chilli Lime Butter.
  7. Serve the Basa fillets alongside the steamed vegetables.
