Excellent! So easy and fresh tasting. My flounder (summer flounder--Fluke, caught in Cape Cod) was fairly thin, so I also decided to reduce the oven temperature to 400 (although it was still at 450 when I put it in). It fell apart a little bit, upon turning it, but was still delicious. Used fresh parsley, fresh lemon and real butter. It couldn't have been better!
Excellent! I almost couldn't wait for it to finish cooking before I took a bite. I did not have almonds on hand, so I had to do without, but it was so amazing anyway I didn't even miss them. I had to use bottled lemon juice as well, though I think next time I want to try it with real lemon juice. I made some extra sauce to drizzle on the rice we served with it....so good! My 4 year old even ate it without gagging, which is high praise from a boy who claims he HATES fish. Thank you for posting this, I will be making it again for sure!
I love this dish. I had this in my "college students cookbook" from years ago and still use it. Instead of white wine, you can use tequila to give it a really unique taste. I always make extra sauce and drizzle it over brown rice...yum! You can easily make this in the microwave also with a glass dish and cover it with cling wrap.
