I have a son who loves fish and I am always looking for good new recipes. We made this recipe on New Year's eve and it was a great way to celebrate. I followed the recipe exactly with two exceptions: I found I needed more canola oil to saute the fillets, which I added as needed to my non-stick pan, and I used a seasoned salt [generously] in place of the salt and pepper called for. It was absolutely simple to make, was ready in 20 minutes total time, and the whole family thought it one of the best fish dishes they had ever eaten. I will make this recipe one of my standards.

Had this last night. My husband said it was one of the best dinners he'd ever had. Definitely a company dinner. The snap peas added a lot of flavor and color. The recipe does not give directions for using the browned butter mixture. Next time, instead of spooning it on the fish, I would brush it on, as some of the fish did not have sauce. This will be one of our "go to" recipes.

One of the best dinners we have had! I had a bit too much brown bits in my browned butter mixture, but the overall flavor and combination with the rice and snap peas was perfect!

I made this last night and it was delicious! My husband said it is one of the best fish dishes I have ever made. My local store did not have flounder, so I used petrale sole and it was great. Agree that the recipe does not tell you what do with the butter (I poured it on as well, but will brush it on next time too), and next time I make this I will add the parsley after the butter has cooled a bit, or sprinkle directly on the fish as it got really brown when added with the lemon juice as directed. The rice was outstanding as well and that will become a staple for us. Thanks Cooking Light!

his was a good recipe. Flounder is a bit "fishy" in flavor for me -- I know, it's fish, but some other fish I prefer. My husband really loved the peas, crisp and fresh. Super quick. I just used the sauce over everything. The brown rice pilaf on the side was really good, my son loved it!

The rice was good, but I thought the fish and snap peas were bland. Will probably fix the rice again.
