Created this to tickle the taste buds! Hope you enjoy it as much as we do! You can use other fish or even chicken in lieu of the flounder. I served it recently with my cole slaw. We enjoyed potato salad and string beans too with this flounder.

Ingredients For flounder with lemon orange sauce

LEMON ORANGE SAUCE
fresh lemon juice
fresh parsley, minced or basil

How To Make flounder with lemon orange sauce
Beat eggs and place in a shallow bowl.
Mix together flour, tarragon, salt, garlic and onion powder, old bay, paprika and black pepper. Place in a shallow bowl. Reserve 1 tbsp. flour for the sauce.
In a large skillet, heat butter and oil over medium heat. Dip fillets in flour and then in the egg. Place in skillet; if right temperature you will hear fish sizzling.
Fry over medium heat until both sides are a golden brown. Depending on the thickness this can be 2-4 minutes per side. Repeat process until done. Remove each finished batch of fish from pan and keep warm in a slightly covered plate.
To make the sauce, drain the pan and wipe clean. Oven medium heat, add butter and olive oil. Then whisk in the reserved tbsp. flour until smooth. Add the lemon and orange juice, water, fresh parsley and red pepper flakes if using. Whisk constantly to blend.
Bring to a boil and cook 5 minutes, whisk every now and then. If sauce thickens too much, dilute by adding 1 tsp. of water at a time until you get desired consistency.
Place flounder on individual plates and spoon sauce over the fish. Garnish with lemon wedges and fresh basil.
