For this baked flounder recipe use fresh lemon, good olive oil, freshly ground peppercorns, and garlic, and you'll never look at lemon pepper the same again. Serve with steamed asparagus.
2 tablespoons grated lemon rind (about 3 lemons)
1 tablespoon extravirgin olive oil
1 1/4 teaspoons black peppercorns, crushed
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 garlic cloves, minced
4 (6-ounce) flounder fillets
Lemon wedges (optional)
How to Make It
