Instructions

Season fillets with ½ tsp. each salt and pepper; dredge in flour.

Heat 2 tsp. oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high until it shimmers. Add half the fillets and cook until golden, about 2 minutes per side; transfer to a platter and tent with foil. Repeat heating and cooking with remaining oil and fillets.

Add wine, lemon juice, and capers to skillet; cook 30 seconds. Off heat, swirl in butter until it emulsifies; season sauce with ½ tsp. pepper and ¼ tsp. salt.

Serve fillets with sauce; top servings with parsley.

To help the salt, pepper, and flour adhere, be sure to blot the fillets dry with paper towels.

For a light crust on the fish, you just need a scant coating of flour. When dredging, shake off any excess.
