Flounder Piccata with Fresh Spinach and Sandy?

I can not believe I have not posted all week. This week has been a blur. This name keeps popping up - Sandy. When I hear it I think of that Springsteen song. Other than that I have been crocheting up a storm, no pun intended.
Let's stay focused and move on to dinner. Flounder Piccata with Fresh Spinach is a recipe I picked up at the fish counter at Robert's Food Center when I was trying to decide what to make for dinner. Perfect for a quick meal.

1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
4 (6-ounce) flounder fillets
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/3 cup dry white wine
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon drained capers, chopped
2 tablespoons butter
4 cups fresh baby spinach

Sprinkle fish with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Dredge fish in flour.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add fish to pan; cook 1 1/2 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.
Add wine, juice, and capers to pan; cook 1 minute. Add butter to pan, stirring until butter melts. Remove fish and sauce from pan; keep warm. Wipe pan clean with a paper towel. Add spinach to pan; saute 1 minute or until wilted. Top each serving with about 1 tablespoon sauce.

I made Red Quinoa as a side dish, I thought the color would look nice on the plate. I also picked up a couple of the store-made jumbo crab cakes. Not bad but I like the ones I make for Christmas Eve better!
