STARRY FLOUNDER PICCATA

SERVES 4
PREP TIME 5 minutes
COOK TIME 15 minutes



  • 1-1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup drained capers
  • 2 cups diagonally-sliced fresh or frozen carrots
  • 1/2 cup sliced onion
  • 2 Tablespoons olive, canola, peanut or grapeseed oil, divided
  • 4 Alaska Starry Flounder fillets (4 to 6 oz. each), fresh, thawed or frozen
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh dill, to garnish

DIRECTIONS

Combine chicken broth and lemon juice in small saucepan; simmer until reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Stir in butter, cornstarch, and capers. Heat through; cover and keep warm.


Sauté carrots and onions in heavy nonstick skillet in 1 tablespoon oil until tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from pan and keep warm.  Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Sole fillets under cold water; pat dry with paper towel. Brush both sides of fillets with remaining oil. Place fillets in pan and cook, uncovered, over medium-high heat about 3 minutes, until browned. Shake pan occasionally to keep fish from sticking.


Turn fillets over and season with salt and pepper. Cover pan tightly and reduce heat to medium. Cook an additional 2 to 5 minutes. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.
Serve each fillet with 1/2 cup vegetables and 2 to 3 tablespoons sauce. Garnish with fresh dill, if desired.
