This is a very tasty dish. It was simple to make and did not take much time or effort. I will make this a staple dish. I believe this would work well with any type of white fish. I served it with steamed asparagus and a salad.
best flounder recipe I've had the pleasure of making and eating
I have never baked flounder before and decided to try your recipe. I needed to cut the recipe back for two filets versus the four. I did not have cooking spray, jelly roll pan or olive oil. I made due with cookie sheet, rubbed a little butter on the pan and used lemon juice as one of the reviews had suggested. Also tasted the mixture (as another review stated) I was a little heavy on the peppercorn, it wasn't easy to divide that particular measure in half, so added a little more lemon zest and juice. Just absolutely loved it! Served it with steamed fresh green beans (used a little lemon juice, salt and pepper to season them) and baked potato. My friend wanted to know why I didn't just make the four filets, he was ready for additional helpings! Will be making it again, soon.
I really enjoyed this meal. I added an additional teaspoon of olive oil to make it easier to spread the ingredients over the fish. Can't wait to make it again!
Easy and delicious.
Am very surprised with the other reviews. Tried this last night, following the recipe exactly. The rub totally overwhelmed the delicate flavor of the fish. Will not be making this again.
This recipe is sooo good! I have made it a few times now and when I try to find a better recipe, nothing quite looks as good as this one. It has lots of great flavor and you can use it on other types of fish also.
why only 2 stars if this is amazing? Just curious.
I don't typically write reviews but I believe that this recipe deserves a great one! I have cooked flounder countless times before but never has anything turned out quite like this. Unfortunately, The first time I made this I did not have any fresh lemons so I substituted them with store bought lemon juice. It tasted just as good as it does with fresh lemons and I will definitely make this recipe again! I would definitely recommend trying this!
Thank all of you this is my first flounder and I was freaking but ya'll made it less scary .. And it came out Awesome ;-)
My son dropped in for dinner along with his girl friend, who is unable to eat dairy products, so I was very happy to find a fish recipe that didn't call for a stick of butter ... or any for that matter. Took another reviewer's advice and cut back on the black pepper a bit. It was a hit! Will definitely be making it again!
The lemon pepper mixture had the best flavor. I was a little scared that the lemon rind might be overpowering, but I tried it before I even spread it on the fish and was pleased to find that it was well balanced. I didn't have any peppercorns so I used coarse ground black pepper and I had no problem with the mixture being too spicy. I did add the juice of half of one of my lemons. This is definitely an huge improvement over the salt laden lemon pepper mixture you find on the spice aisle at the grocery store. It was a light yet flavorful recipe and I will definitely cook this again.
I made this recipe with skin-on fresh flounder. I followed the recipe as written, but did not have crushed peppercorns. I substituted it for the same amount of ground pepper- HUGE MISTAKE! I f you are like me and substitute the peppercorns for ground pepper, greatly reduce the amount, I wish the recipe included the amount of ground pepper- which I guess most of us have at home. Although the fish came out moist and tender, it was sooo peppery, it was almost inedible. My family ate it, but scrapped off most of the pepper-lemon mixture. My 7 year-old son, kept saying, 'delicious, but too spicy--I need more water!" Oh well, live and learn--
This is so delicious! My family just loves this dish...even my two girls. We make it every week now. I would recommend this recipe to anyone.
Easy, fast and taked great. Also, cooked to perfection. I will put this in my regular rotation as I try to cook low carb, low calorie meals.
My husband and I really enjoyed this dish and think it would work well with a lot of different types of fish. My initial reaction was that the topping was too salty, but then I realized I only used about 12 oz of flounder instead of the 24 oz that was called for in the recipe. Will make this again!
This is absolutely fantastic! You'll never eat that crystallized shake-on pseudo-lemon pepper again. The recipe is easy, healthy, and delicious. We've tried it with other white fish with equally good results. Try this. You won't be sorry.
This recipe was the perfect answer to my search for a quick prep dish. I made the lemon pepper mix midday so all I had to do at dinner time was spread the mix on the fillets, pop them in the oven. Delicious!! Check fish at 5 minutes. My husband would have liked it more with a little panko tossed into the mix...
Easy + fast + tasty = perfect! Served this with coleslaw -- so good.
My boyfriend said this was his favorite meal I've ever made him - and I cook all the time. I enjoyed it as well although maybe slightly less than him! The peppercorns give it a good kick and the lemon is very refreshing. Super simple to make and very inexpensive. I'd like to try it on a thicker fish next time - maybe halibut. I served it with a mix of zuchini, asapargus and tomatoes sauteed in a little EVOO and garlic. As well as baked potatoe. Very light meal.
