Flounder, like many types of fish, is healthy as well as tasty! Paired with a lemon pepper seasoning, this baked flounder has an astounding flavor that’ll leave you wishing you had room for more! I personally love this dish served over a bed of rice with a side of green, such as broccoli or asparagus. Pair it with a crisp Chardonnay.
- 1 to 1 and 1/4 pounds flounder fillet
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- lemon-pepper seasoning
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- 1/2 lemon, sliced
- kosher salt
Preheat oven to 400°F. Melt butter in a glass baking dish that will hold the flounder in a single layer. Place the fillets in the dish with the butter, turning them several times to make sure they are well buttered. Turn under the thinner edges, so the fillets are more equal in thickness. Sprinkle with lemon-pepper seasoning and the juice of 1/2 lemon. Lightly season with salt (remember there is a little salt in the lemon-pepper seasoning). Place a few slices of lemon over the fillets.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the fish is opaque and will flake with a fork. Serve immediately.
