Flounder Francese

Rebecca was in a mood for fish tonight, and my hunny usually gets what she asks for. I found some thick beautiful flounder filets at the new Fairway Market recently opened near my house, brought them home, and made one of the easiest dishes in the world – Francese!

I have plenty of Cucuzza in my back yard so I fried some more to serve with the fish, but this time, I sliced them like chips.

Most people are familiar with the classic Chicken Francese you find in Italian restaurants but I think this preparation really complements a fish filet.
Moist and flavorful, this meal is on the table in minutes.


  1. Season two flounder filets with salt and pepper and dredge them in flour.
  2. In a pan large enough to fit the filets, add some olive oil over medium heat.
  3. Dredge the floured fillets into some beaten eggs and fry in the pan until golden brown on each side.
  4. Add the juice of 1 lemon and 1/2 cup of white wine. Simmer for 2 minutes to let the sauce develop and reduce.
  5. Gently remove the filets and place on warm dinner plates.
  6. Raise the heat to medium-high and stir in 3 tablespoons of butter and 1 tablespoon of fresh chopped parsley.
  7. Pour the sauce over the filets and serve.
