  • Saute the fish in olive oil until the fillets get a little browned, about a minute per side.

  • Remove from the pan and set aside.

  • Add chopped garlic to the hot oil and cook for about 2 minutes.

  • Next add capers, wine, and lemon juice. Bring back to a simmer. Set the fish fillets carefully into the sauce.

  • Saute the fish for about 3 to 4 minutes per side.

  • Set the cooked fish on the plate and pour remaining sauce over the fish.
