1/1 Photo of Flounder in Jalapeno Cream
I grew up eating deep fried flounder- which was great - but when I came across this recipe my first thought was "Wow" not my mother's flounder. As flounder is not available in many parts of the US, this would also work very well with sole or mild flavored fish fillets. Recipe source: Gourmet (June 2005)
