1 tablespoon olive oil
4 (6-ounce) flounder fillets
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 cup thinly sliced shallots (about 2 shallots)
1 tablespoon butter, melted
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley
4 lemon wedges


Place oven rack in middle of oven. Preheat broiler to high.

Drizzle oil in a roasting pan. Pat fish dry with paper towels; arrange fish in pan. Sprinkle fish evenly with paprika. Sprinkle shallots, butter, and garlic around pan. Pour wine into pan around fish. Broil 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, basting frequently. Arrange fish on a platter; sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper. Stir parsley into pan sauce; drizzle over fish. Serve with lemon wedges.

Salsa Flounder: Omit the salt. Use 1/2 teaspoon salt-free Cajun/Creole seasoning in place of paprika. Use 3/4 cup salsa (such as Herdez Salsa Casera) in place of wine. Swap in cilantro for parsley, and serve with lime wedges instead of lemon.
