Flounder in Lemon and Wine Sauce

I know what you're thinking: why would you eat flounder?  That fish in The Little Mermaid is so cute.

My answer: That character is NOT a flounder.  That's just his name!  He's actually an Atlantic tang blue surgeonfish.

And now you're thinking that I'm crazy because I needed to look that up after consuming flounder to clear my conscience.  Except now I think it's one of those fish that's not sustainable or something.  *SIGH*

Regardless, this recipe is tasty.  And you don't have to use flounder.  I usually don't use recipes on display at the grocery store but this one looked legit.  It tastes kind of fancy and not too citrus-y.
