1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons salt - divided use
2 tablespoons olive oil

Cooking Directions:

  1. Combine flour and seasonings on a shallow plate. Dredge the fillets in flour mixture, coating evenly.
  2. Heat the oil in a large nonstick sauté pan over medium-high heat.
