The whole family liked this recipe. This is definantly a keeper.
loved this! beautiful golden color, tasty tasty! We left off the sauce and next time won't do the onion, this is THAT GOOD without it!
Great recipe! I decided to actually cook the flounder in the sauce after it boiled (rather than just pouring it over). It was awesome!! Thanks so much - I hadn't had flounder in a really long time and I was looking for something that was both simple and flavorful, MISSION: ACCOMPLISHED. :)
