My mom passed away before she could give me her recipe, but I think I got it close. It is a simple way to do a great fish, if your lucky enough to get a whole flounder.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat brolier on high.
  2. Score the fish in two or three spots on the dark side.
  3. Melt butter and worcestershire sauce with juce from half a lemon and garlic.
  4. Rub fish down with salt and pepper on both sides, depending on the size of your fish you might need more or less salt and pepper.
  5. Put fish under the broiler for 3 minuets.
  6. Slide the fish out of the broiler and paint it with butter and garlic sauce every minuet or so untill the fish is done. I follow this rule: if you can stick a toothpick into the widest part of the fish, then place the toothpick to your lips and the toothpick is warm, your fish is done.
  7. When fish is done drizzle with the juice from the other half of your lemon.
  8. I like putting the whole fish on the table and let everybody digin.

This is a great recipe! Had broiled flounder at a fish camp in Appalachicola, FL once and this is the closest I have ever come to replicating that experience :) Easy and really yummy!
