Pan fried flounder with leeks

Everything here with the exception of the leeks came from Aldi. That's a $6 bottle of Pinot Grigio in the top right corner. I use it all the time for cooking, and it's not terrible as a table white either.

Gotta clean those leeks, grit likes to hide between the layers.

Leeks in the pan with olive oil, salt and pepper.

After a few minutes on high heat, back it down to medium. Add white wine, lemon juice, a knob of butter and garlic.

Cover and simmer.

Time to dredge the fish. Pan is hot, this goes quickly - butter and olive oil in the pan. Dredge each side of the fish and knock off excess flour, you're going for a thin coat.

Into the pan.

Doesn't take long with fillets this thin...maybe 90 seconds?

How's the sauce? Add tomatoes and olives.

Ready to serve.

Are you in favor of irradating food?
