We love the taste of bright lemon so we used the full 2 Tablespoons of lemon juice. You can always just start with 1 Tablespoon, taste it and then add more lemon juice if you like it as much as we do.
Season the fish with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Add olive oil or melt the butter in the warm pan.
Add the fish. Cook on both sides until each side is browned. A light crust should form. Don't over cook the fish and make sure it's still moist. Gently and carefully remove the fish from the pan and set aside.
In the same heated pan, add the shallot (or minced onion) and garlic. Cook until tender and translucent.
Add the wine (or stock/broth), lemon zest and lemon juice. Heat the sauce until it gently starts to boil. Reduce heat.
Simmer the sauce for about 2 minutes or until it reduces a bit. Add capers, parsley, salt, and pepper to taste. Add optional red chili flakes.
