Until very recently, I was a one-oven kind of girl, and dairy cooking during the Nine Days was done exclusively in my toaster oven or on my stovetop. I still find that the stovetop is the way to go for certain flaky fishes, including flounder. This one is light, fragrant, and delicious.

Prepare the Flounder
Season fish with salt and pepper, then dredge in flour.
Heat a large frying pan and spray with cooking spray. Brown the flounder in batches until it flakes easily, about three minutes per side. Remove to a platter.
In the same pan, melt butter, then squeeze the oranges directly into the pan. Add salt, pepper, and thyme and bring to a simmer.
Taste and season as necessary and allow to simmer until lightly reduced and the flavors have come together, about two minutes.
Pour sauce over flounder and serve.
