Cook Time:


  • 2 pound(s) fresh flounder fillets
  • 1 cup(s) flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) pepper
  • 4 tablespoon(s) butter
  • 2 tablespoon(s) vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoon(s) lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) grated lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoon(s) fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon(s) capers, chopped


  1. Combine flour, salt and pepper in a shallow bowl. Dredge fish in seasoned flour to coat both sides of the fillets, shake off excess.

  2. In a large skillet, melt 2 Tbsp. butter in the oil over medium heat. Add the fillets and sauté, turning once, until browned outside and cooked through – about 5 to 7 minutes.

  3. Remove to a platter and keep warm.

  4. Pour off all but 1 tbsp. of fat from the skillet. Add remaining butter and cook over medium heat until browned – about one minute.

  5. Stir in lemon juice, lemon zest, chopped parsley and capers. Pour the picatta sauce over the fish.
