Best Flounder Recipes
Pan-Fried Flounder with Lemon Butter Sauce
Jonathan Waxman's recipe for crisp flounder is simple and delicious. The keys, he says, are to get flounder from a reliable source and to concentrate while cooking it. "Get the flounder too hot and it turns to mush, too cool and it goes rubbery." He then drizzles the fish with a tangy Meyer lemon-butter sauce.
Golden Flounder with Caper-Almond Dressing
Flounder is an excellent stand-in for costly Dover sole. Mourad Lahlou tops it with a dressing of capers, almonds and raisins.
Baked Flounder with Parmesan Crumbs
Delicious baked flounder is one of the best fast fish recipes you can have in your repertoire. Chef Nigel Slater adds freshly grated Parmesan to the breadcrumbs to form a tasty buttery topping for the flaky white fish, which cooks in just 15 minutes.
Pan-Fried Flounder with Poblano-Corn Relish
Brian Talley, who says he "cooks as much fish as everyone in the family will tolerate," pairs sweet flounder (a great source of lean protein) with a slightly smoky, healthy relish of homegrown chile peppers, corn and avocado.
Stuffed Flounder with Frizzled Mint and Ginger
Most fish prepared in India is stewed or cooked quickly in the tandoor, but this dish from the Taj Lake Palace is seared, making it decidedly more modern. A fragrant herb mix is stuffed into each fish fillet and blended into a yogurt cream sauce. Then the dish is finished elegantly with crisp frizzled mint leaves and strips of ginger.
