Flounder Amandine

"I had some frozen flounder filets I had bought at Costco and wanted to do something just a little special rather than the ordinary. I found this recipe on the back of the bag containing the flounder. It is so good, quick and easy -- and you will probably have all the ingredients on hand (as long as you already have the flounder ;) Would be nice to serve with rice. Enjoy!"

    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!

    Easy, great taste. I used Smart Balance, fresh lemon juice, and added fresh minced garlic. Delicious over brown rice and side of broccoli. Kids ( 5, 4, and 2) devoured it. Thanks!

    Very very yummy! I mixed a little panko with the almonds and added them on top during the last 6 minutes. Lemon wedges and asparagus on the side. Thank You!

    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!

    Fast, easy, and great tasting recipe! My fish was very thin, 5 pieces in just over a pound. I cooked at 400 per another reviewer's suggestion and baked for 20 minutes. Turned out perfect! Served with precooked Kashi 7 Grain Pilaf and veggies. This is a recipe to print out and save!

    This was simple to make and tasty. I used olive oil instead of butter and it still tasted good.

    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.
