Baked Flounder with Fresh Lemon Pepper

Yield 4 servings
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.

Ingredients

  • 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
  • Cooking spray
  • Lemon wedges (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 425°.

  2. Combine first 5 ingredients. Place fillets on a jelly roll pan coated with cooking spray. Rub garlic mixture evenly over fillets. Bake at 425° for 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.
