Cut each fillet in half on the diagonal (this will make the fillets easier to turn). Combine flour with salt and pepper in a flat bowl; lightly coat fillets, shaking off excess. Preheat Cuisinart™ Electric Skillet to 325°F. Melt 2 tablespoons butter and combine with oil. Cut the remaining 2 tablespoons butter into 8 pieces and set aside to chill in refrigerator. Pour ½ the olive oil and melted butter mixture into Skillet and stir to coat surface. Add each fillet and cook for about 3 minutes or until the bottom is lightly browned. Turn over carefully with a spatula and cook the other side for 1 to 2 minutes, depending on the thickness. Remove fillets and keep warm. Add wine to Skillet and stir to reduce for I minute. Add lemon juice and the pieces of cold butter; stir gently as sauce thickens slightly. Add lemon zest and parsley. Serve over fillets.
