Wait until you taste fish prepared this way..it's out of this world! I have used this recipe with several types of firm white fish, not just flounder, and it hasn't failed me yet.

Allyoop, I did mean to broil with the aluminum foil, that is why the distance from the broiler is mentioned. However, it sounds like you figured out an alternative method that proved to be successful and I am so glad that you enjoyed the recipe. Happy Cooking!
