Serves 4 (serving size: 1 fillet, about 2 tablespoons sauce, and 1 lemon wedge)

This dish would go great with a side of old-school boiled red potatoes. For the salsa variation, serve with rice or tortillas.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place oven rack in middle of oven. Preheat broiler to high.

Step 2

Drizzle oil in a roasting pan. Pat fish dry with paper towels; arrange fish in pan. Sprinkle fish evenly with paprika. Sprinkle shallots, butter, and garlic around pan. Pour wine into pan around fish. Broil 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, basting frequently. Arrange fish on a platter; sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper. Stir parsley into pan sauce; drizzle over fish. Serve with lemon wedges.

Step 3

Salsa Flounder: Omit the salt. Use 1/2 teaspoon salt-free Cajun/Creole seasoning in place of paprika. Use 3/4 cup salsa (such as Herdez Salsa Casera) in place of wine. Swap in cilantro for parsley, and serve with lime wedges instead of lemon. SERVES 4 (serving size: 1 fillet, about 2 tablespoons sauce, and 1 lime wedge) CALORIES 201; FAT 6g (sat 3g); SODIUM 568mg

Excellent recipe, fast, easy, delicious! Had to substitute tilapia, it was amazing. Served with brown rice cooked with chicken stock, saffron & slivered almonds. Definitely on the repeat list.
