Pan-Fried Flounder with Lemon Butter Sauce

Flaky, delicately sweet flounder is a quick and easy fish to cook for weeknight dinners. Its mild flavor and fantastic texture make it the perfect base for a wide range of vibrant dishes. Here, five foolproof flounder recipes.

There are herbs everywhere in this dish. A mix of garlic, serrano chile, cilantro, and chopped mint is stuffed into each fillet and blended into an incredible yogurt sauce.

Jonathan Waxman's recipe for crisp flounder is simple but spectacular. The keys, he says, are to get the fish from a reliable source and concentrate while you cook it. "Get the flounder too hot and it turns to mush, too cool and it goes rubbery."

A puree of parsley and scallions mixed with lemon juice and oil both flavors the couscous and acts as a sauce for the fish.

In this super-simple recipe, flounder fillets are sprinkled with cheesy bread crumbs and baked until golden.

This fast recipe is total comfort food.
