Tilapia with Lemon Butter Sauce

So today was the last of the groceries day, lol.  Hubby went out and did a little emergency shopping to get us through to the weekend. Tonight's recipe is from a Publix Apron's Meal.  For those of you who do not live in the eastern USA, Publix is a Supermarket and every wk the food demonstrator makes one of these meals to sample.  they also give out recipe cards to go with the meals...

2 tablespoons fresh Italian parsley, coarsely chopped
1 lemon
1 1/2 lb tilapia fillets (thawed)
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
4 teaspoons flour, divided
Large zip-top bag
3 tablespoons butter, divided
1/4 cup white wine

Chop parsley; cut lemon in half. Set both aside.
Check fish for bones (wash hands).
Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 2–3 minutes. Place seasoned salt and 3 teaspoons flour in zip-top bag; shake to mix. Add fish to zip-top bag; seal tightly and shake to coat.
Place 1 tablespoon butter in pan, then add fish; cook 3 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon butter to center of pan. Turn fillets, using spatula, and distribute butter under each fillet. Cook 3 more minutes or until fish is golden and flakes easily. Transfer fish to serving plates.
Add wine, and remaining 1 tablespoon butter and 1 teaspoon flour to pan; squeeze juice of lemon into pan. Heat and stir 1–2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in parsley and serve butter sauce over fish.

So the hubs and I can't always agree :D.  I really liked this and him...not so much.  He's not the biggest fan of fish and he thought this was too lemony.  I really liked it.  I served this with orzo and asparagus.  I might make this again for a lunch for myself, but not for dinner for the two of us.
