  • In the same pan over medium heat, add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil and then stir in the garlic. Cook for 1 minute or until soft.

  • Pour in the wine, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, thyme, and parsley. Increase heat to high cook for 2-3 minutes or until the wine reduces in half. Taste for seasoning and add more salt or lemon if desired.

  • Plate the fillets and then spoon the sauce over the fillets. Serve warm.
