Number of Servings: 3


    1 eggs, beaten
    3/4 tablespoon olive oil
    3/4 tablespoon butter
    1/4 cup flour
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon onion powder
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/8 teaspoon paprika
    1/8 teaspoon black pepper
    3 (3.5) flounder fillets


In a large skillet, heat the oil and 1 tablespoons of butter over medium heat.
Place the flour and all the seasonings in a plastic bag and shake to blend
Place the beaten eggs in a shallow dish.
When the skillet is good and hot, put the flounder fillets in the bag one at a time and then dip in the egg. Coat them completely with the egg and place in skillet. The egg should sizzle immediately. If it doesn't, the oil isn't hot enough.
Save 1 tablespoon of the flour mixture for the sauce.
Fry over medium heat until brown on both sides, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Add extra butter if you need to.
Remove from skillet, keep warm.
Discard any oil left in skillet and add the butter and the 1 tbsp of seasoned flour reserved from the flounder. Whisk until smooth. Add the rest of the sauce ingredients, stirring constantly until well blended. Bring to boil and cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently. If the sauce thickens too much, add more water- just 1 tsp at a time until you achieve the desired consistency.
