What is flounder?
Flounder is a flatfish species found at the bottom of the ocean. They have both eyes on one side of its head and lay on the ocean floor. Flounder has a mild-tasting fish taste with a sweet undertone. It is an excellent source of omega 3!
This recipe is similar to the Halibut with lemon and capers except for this dish, the sauce is made after cooking the fish. The reason for this is because flounder is a lot thinner than halibut and will break apart if you cook it for too long.
After washing the fish, pat dry them and then dredge with flour. In a skillet, place oil and 2 tablespoons of butter. Change heat to medium high and cook on each side for 2-3 minutes, until brown. When you are done, place the fish separately on a plate and now its time to make the juice! Do this part right after while the pan is still hot.
In the same pan and the heat off, whisk 2 tablespoons of butter, lemon juice, and the whole jar of capers including the liquid.Print
