Thyme is one of those ubiquitous spices that everyone seems to have hanging out in their spice cabinets.

Got fresh thyme? You can grow it like a beautiful ground cover! Just keep the flowers off and it will keep growing!

And your RECIPE:
- 3/4 cup white wine
- 1 teaspoon thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon pressed red pepper optional
- 4 cloves garlic pressed
- 6 fish fillets
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup Romano cheese grated
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Lemon wedges
- In a large plastic, zipper topped bag, combine first four ingredients. Add fish, seal bag and marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes, turning bag occasionally.
- Meanwhile, combine flour and next 3 ingredients in another large plastic zipper topped bag. Remove fish from marinade (discard marinade) and add them to the flour bag, close bag and shake to coat evenly with flour mixture.
- In a skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Add fish and cook 6 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve with lemon wedges.
