    Robyn's Cookin''s Note:

    This southern Italian fish recipe comes together fairly quickly and packs a ton of mouth-pleasing flavor. It's made from ingredients that I usually have on hand so I have a feeling it will be a regular at our house. I adapted this recipe from the Williams-Sonoma cookbook called Essentials of Mediterranean Cooking.

    1. 1
      Soak the capers in cold water for 20 minutes. Drain, rinse well, and then drain again; pat dry.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, lightly season both sides of each fillet with salt and pepper.
    3. 3
      Heat a large, non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add the butter and oil; let the butter melt completely.
    4. 4
      Add the fillets to the pan and cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until browned and just barely cooked through. With a spatula, remove to a warmed platter and set aside.
    5. 5
      Add the shallots and garlic to the pan and cook, stirring often, about 2 minutes.
    6. 6
      Add the wine and lemon juice and then raise the heat to medium-high. Boil for 2-3 minutes or until the sauce thickens slightly.
    7. 7
      Stir in the capers, parsley, and lemon zest. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
    8. 8
      Spoon sauce over the fillets and serve immediately.
