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.
