My Husband's Favorite Fish Dinner -  all pretty easy and quick with lots and lots of butter :)

Pan Fried Fish Fillets with Brown Butter 


2 fish fillets
4 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 c flour
salt and pepper
2 Tbsp lemon juice
Fresh Thyme or Oregano
Season fish on both sides with salt and pepper.  Lightly dredge fish in flour and shake off excess. When pan is hot, add olive oil followed immediately by 1-2 tablespoons butter.  Add Fish  and cook until golden crust forms.  Cooking time depends on type and thickness of fillet.  Thin flounder = just a few minutes each side. 
Turn Fish and continue cooking until browned.  Remove to a warm plate. 
Pour out the cooking fat from the pan, add 2 tablespoons of butter, cook until hazel color. Turn off the heat, add the lemon juice and few leaves of thyme or oregano.  Pour the brown butter sauce over the fish fillets and serve.
