Flounder Recipes

Flounder, also known as Sole, has been the star of classical Continental menus for decades. The finest Flounder in the world comes from Alaska’s clear, cold waters. Varieties include: Dover, Rex, Rock, Flathead and Yellowfin. Delicate, moist and tender Flounder fillets are best cooked by poaching, steaming, sautéing or microwaving. Flounder should be handled gently from pan to plate, where it provides excellent plate coverage. Classical preparations once included topping Flounder fillets with rich sauces. Today, take advantage of Flounder’s low-calorie count and bring it to menus with mildly flavored light sauces, reductions of citrus or herbs or fragrant fruit salsas.

Put back in oven and broil just until cheese has melted and topping is golden brown.
