Posted in Another Taste of Palm Springs by Tammy Taylor. I also have this in Simply Seafood" by Vicki Emmons. You can use Vermouth instead of white wine if you like.

We thought this was a lovely flounder recipe that was easy to prepare and had great flavor. I used shallots in place of white onions, as the recipe allowed, and served it with a side of green beans with carmelized shallots (Recipe #201879). I would definitely make this dish again. Thanks for posting.
