Want to bake some flounder while the kids are home. Any good recipes ? Thanks in advance. Barb
Make a white sauce with butter, flour and milk or cream and pour it over the flounder in a baking pan. Top with buttered bread crumbs and bake at 350..maybe 30 minutes till bubbly. It's pretty kid friendly.
Haven't made it in a lonnnnng time, but I used to like to saute lots of minced celery and carrot in some butter. Lay each piece of flounder on one side of a piece of parchment, top flounder with the sauteed veggies (divided evenly), then top each with a slice of lemon. Fold over the parchment and seal the edge so it forms a little pouch. Can't remember oven temp for certain, but I think I'd bake at 425 til parchment browned a bit, then test for doneness.
Yes, Fish en Papillote, parchment, is a nice way to prepare flounder. Minimal ingredients as it is so tender and mild.
We caught quite a few this past summer so have prepared a few different ways. Recently i toasted a handful of crushed pistachios and a bit of panko breadcrumbs mixed with a bit of ev olive oil and garlic...whole lemon slices and baked, (cooks fast), then a quick broil to toast.
Also have baked on my 'shipwreck' the final minutes...
Here is a link that might be useful: shipwreck pie
Last night I just dipped the flounder in flour, dipped in egg, and back into the flour. Lightly fried it in butter/oil for 3 min per side. Onto the plates it went, sprized with fresh lemon, and served. Really, really fresh flounder needs nothing else!!

Thanks for the tips. I ended up baking it in 375 oven, sprayed with evoo and covered with chopped peppers, both red and green and chopped onions, It certainly does not take very long. I liked the idea of the pistaschios and panko breadcrumbs with evoo and garlic. Will try that next time.. Very much appreciate. Barb
Not baked....but I just dust it in flour flavored with Old Bay and fry it in a pan in peanut oil...quick easy and tasty.
