Add garlic, season to taste and cook until golden (3-4 minutes), then toss oregano through. Keep warm.

  • Heat 50ml oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 flounder and cook, turning once, until just golden (2-3 minutes), then transfer to a roasting pan. Repeat with another 50ml oil and remaining flounder. Combine garlic, lemon rind and juice and remaining oil, pour over fish and roast in oven until fish is just cooked through (8-10 minutes). Transfer to a serving platter, scatter with olives, oregano and parsley, pour pan juices over, season to taste and serve hot with golden oregano potatoes and lemon wedges.
