Flounder Meuniere - Meatballs & Milkshakes

Normally, this is made with sole in the traditional french version, but it’s equally good with other kinds of white, flaky fish. And it’s perfect for a quick dinner because the fish cooks quickly and there’s very little prep work and few ingredients. I love making this in the summer when we need a break from grilling and don’t want to heat up the whole apartment.

Flounder (or Sole) Meuniere

2 fillets of a white fish, such as flounder or sole

3 tablespoons flour, white or whole wheat

3 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 lemon, juiced

1/2 cup white wine

zest of 1 lemon

1 teaspoon parsley, chopped

Dredge the fish in the flour and shake off any excess. Saute in the olive oil and 2 tablespoons of the butter until the have started to brown along the edges and then flip.

Add the wine and lemon juice and finish cooking for a minute or two. Add in the remaining butter to finish. Remove to a plate and sprinkle with the lemon zest and parsley. Dinner in under 10 minutes!
