  • To begin, season the fish with salt and pepper, then lightly dust with flour. Pat to remove any excess flour.
  • In a large, nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Cook the fish until crisp and golden, about 4 minutes per side.
  • Remove the fish from the skillet and set aside.
  • Add the wine and capers to the hot skillet, and scrape up any browned-on bits in the bottom of the pan. Gently boil the mixture for 1 minute to concentrate the wine and evaporate the alcohol. Remove the pan from the heat and add the butter and parsley. Swirl the pan until the butter is just melted.
  • Pour the caper butter over the fish, then top with squeezed lemon juice. Serve immediately.
