Italian Haddock Piccata

This heavenly recipe is from Italian cuisine and can be served as main dish.
  Fresh haddock fillets 24 Ounce, skinned, halved on the bias (4 Fillets, 6 Ounce Each)
  Sea salt To Taste (Wegmans)
  Freshly cracked black pepper To Taste
  Pure olive oil 2 Tablespoon (Wegmans)
  Peeled shallots 2 , minced (Food You Feel Good About)
  Dry white wine 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Nonpareil capers 2 Tablespoon, drained (Italian Classics)
  Lemon butter sauce 8 Ounce (1 Package, Wegmans, Prepared Foods)
  Pan searing flour 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Wegmans)
  Basting oil 1 Tablespoon (Wegmans)
  Butter 1 Teaspoon (Wegmans)
  Flat leaf parsley 1 Tablespoon (For Garnish)

1. Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in medium saucepan on MEDIUM; add shallots. Cook, stirring 2-3 min, until lightly browned. Add wine, stirring to loosen browned bits from bottom of pan. Cook on MEDIUM-HIGH, 4-5 min until liquid is reduced by half. Add capers and lemon butter sauce. Sprinkle with cracked black pepper; bring to simmer. Reduce heat to LOW. Keep warm as fillets cook.

2. Season fillets with sea salt and cracked pepper and dust with pan-searing flour; pat off excess. Heat remaining olive oil in large skillet on MEDIUM-HIGH, until oil faintly smokes; add fillets. Turn over when fillets change color about one-quarter of way up and seared side has turned paper-bag brown, 3-4 min.

3. Reduce heat to MEDIUM-LOW. Cook 2-3 min or until internal temp reaches 120 degrees. (Check by inserting thermometer halfway into thickest part of fillets.)

4. Add basting oil and butter to pan; swirl. Baste with spoon, 1-2 min, until internal temp reaches 130 degrees. Transfer to clean platter; let rest at least 2 min. Sprinkle with parsley and serve with sauce.
