Flounder with Lemon Sauce
This recipe serves:   

For the lemon sauce:

3 large lemons
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water

For the flounder:

4 6-ounce flounder fillets
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

Cooking Instructions
For the lemon sauce:

1. Bring the sugar and water to a boil. Remove from the heat and cool.

2. Juice the lemons and strain. Add half of the sugar syrup to the lemon juice. Add more sugar syrup until a pleasant balance of sweetness and tartness is reached. Cool to room temperature.

For the flounder:

1. Season the flounder fillets with salt and pepper, then drizzle with olive oil.

2. Place a sauté pan large enough to accommodate all the fillets over medium-high heat. Add the flounder and lower the heat to medium. Cook until well-browned on one side, about 3 minutes. Turn the fillets over and cook 1 more minute.

3. Serve the flounder topped with the lemon sauce.

Serving Size: 1 fillet with 2 tablespoons of sauce
