Sizzling Flounder recipe-just in time for this weekend's catch!

This recipe is outstanding, so get on out there and catch some flatties!  This recipe is also awesome with any of your favorite fish.

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. paprika
4 (6 oz) flounder fillets
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup butter
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

1. Place 1 oven rack 5 inches from heat; place a second rack in middle of oven. Combine Parmesan cheese and paprika. Season fish with salt and pepper.

2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Heat butter in a broiler-safe 13 x 9 inch baking dish in oven 8 minutes or until butter is melted and beginning to brown. Place fish in hot butter.

3. Bake at 450 on middle oven rack 10 minutes. Carefully flip fish, and baste with pan juices. Sprinkle with lemon juice and Parmesan cheese mixture. Bake 5 more minutes or just until fish flakes with a fork. Remove from oven; increase oven temperature to broil.

4. Broil fish on oven rack 5 inches from heat 2 to 3 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown.


  1. How very cool. The next time I catch a "flattie" I'll be sure to use the recipe.
    Thanks for posting the blog on fb. Had no idea you did this and I think it's wonderful!
