20-Minute Flounder Piccata in White Wine Lemon Butter Sauce

Flounder Piccata

This is one of my favorite summer dinners. Light, fresh and easy too! And there’s wine in the recipe…a little for the pan, a little for me. :)

What You’ll Need:

  • Wild caught Flounder
  •  1 cup sliced baby Bella mushrooms
  • 3 tbsp Capers
  • 1 glove garlic, minced
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1/2 cup organic chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp salted butter
  • Organic flour

In a large non-stick pan, heat olive oil and butter over medium high heat. While it’s heating up, dredge Flounder filets in flour. Then pan fry each one about 2-3 minutes per side depending on thickness. Transfer fish to a covered plate to keep warm, leaving “sauce” in pan.

Add wine, scraping up brown bits from pan. Add capers, mushrooms, garlic, broth and lemon juice. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until mushrooms are heated through.

Spoon sauce over Flounder and serve promptly.
